I bought 5 Charisma's and one just might be a Temptation instead, please help if you can! Both have a red outline...both have the same inner part...both have the same spotting around the redness...but the part that is solid red has a different pattern...
Please, explain, what makes you think either Charisma or Temptation.

The one i think might be Temptation is 43.2 cm tall (scape) and from petal to petal longest part is 12.7 cm.
The next largest Charisma is 30.5 cm tall (scape) and from petal to petal longest part is 10.2 cm

Thanks for help,
Sandra :)

This site has both Charismas and Temptations.
Charismas on this page : http://www.amarylis.estranky.cz/clanky/name_hippeastrum_10.html
Temptations on this page: http://www.amarylis.estranky.cz/clanky/name_hippeastrum_5.html

I still cannot tell after looking.
Sandra :)

Just looking at it [the first photo I saw on the thread] I thought of the ones I had last year. "Charisma" came to mind. There is one called "Desire", but the one you photographed looked similar if not a" Charisma". Beautiful!

I am not an expert, but I sure look at all the ones available each year and have a nice collection of bulbs. Haven't quite mastered the reblooming process yet...work in progress!
