Great website, love your Hippies - I am Australian, they are Hippeastrums here! Good to know that you can keep them in pots. I am renting at the moment and all my plants are in pots. Do they require any special care - we are going into Autumn here, ours flower from about August onwards. Mine have been upset by moving from Qld to Victoria back in October, have been knocked around also by snails and slugs. I have leaves, but no flowers and they will go dormant over next month or so I presume?
