I saw the mother in bloom a few months ago at this nursery, not for sale. I believe it was pink and stripey but my memory is bad and I could be making it up. Yesterday I found a baby of it. I'm sure it's a species with the distinctive red line on the underside of the leaf. For $8 I bought it on the spot. Label said "miniature amaryllis."
Anyone have this?
I have one that has a red stripe down the leaf but I cannot remeber what side of the leaf the stripe is on. I think it may be the underside.
Thanks Sunshine. I'm good at spotting the odd ones.
You're most welcome! Now SAR so far is the only variety that I know of that has this red midrib on it's leaf back. There could be some that I don't know of specially species or possibly new crosses. We'll never really be 100% sure until it blooms. It is definitely a good purchase for $8.
I sure hope it gets big enough to bloom for me. Love that! Guess I was wrong on the color!
