Thank you for your feedback.
And "Hot Lips" is now w/in my Frontal Lobes, got into my wishlist; I like the trumpet shape, the color and the shape of white midrib.

Pariter contribution, I do not know the appropriate term, but both parents contributed equally. The broad "butterfly wings" (the upper segments on the left and right side) are due to "PapDon" and H.papilio, respectively. This provides the offspring with slightly a differential symmetry, as one is generally accustomed to, in the "common" big flowers of TETs. And this is exactly what I am targeting!

"PapDon2" itself might be the most attractive knight Star Lily that I obtained EVER.

First Love looks similar to several other cultivars, but according to Hadeco's website, its a good ID. Knock on Wood, the first 4 bulbs that have bloomed have been what I ordered. Remember some of the past years, where so many bulbs were incorrectly labeled?

Another green that is currently in bloom: Fantasy from Royal Colors. This was listed on their website as a miniature. Boy was I surprised when it bloomed, each flower was between 17-19cm across: much too large for a true miniature. I contacted RC, thinking that they had substituted. Well, the size is correct. It actually is a midsize bloom. RC listed it as a miniature to differentiate it from their other green Amaryllis, Luna which is a large flower. I bet I'm not the only person who wondered why this miniature was so huge!

Double Galaxy came from a wholesaler I found on E-bay "Randysodak" . He is based in California and gets his bulbs each October from Holland. Just Google Ebay Amaryllis bulbs and page down until you find his offers. We got a total of eight different ones from him and all have bloomed. One was missing in the box when they arrived and he was very quick to replace it. Cost was $7-$8 per bulb. This was our first purchase and we were happy with his service. May try more varieties next year.
This one is Black Pearl and is a much deeper velvet red than shows on the photo

Helios from Royal Colors. Pale green Dutch miniature.
I finally heard back from RC. They claim the supplier mixed up the bulbs. Bordeaux Rascal were actually Balentino. So does that mean If I ordered Balentino, I would have ended up with Bordeaux Rascal? I actually thought that I would have a 100% success rate for correctly labeled bulbs this winter. But my luck finally ran out at the very end of the season.

Ruby Star from my garden. This bulb has been in the ground since March '11. We always say that bulbs take a few years to fully recover from forcing for winter blooms. Well this bulb didn't read those instructions: it put up 3 scapes this year. My only explanation is citrus fertilizer. This particular Amaryllis bed is under an orange tree: I fertilize the tree every 6 weeks during the growing season with both a dry citrus fertilizer and a liquid micronutrient solution for citrus. I'm starting to wonder if the citrus formulation is especially beneficual to Amaryllis. My other Amaryllis beds are fertilized, when I remember, with Osmocote. They are doing OK, but not putting up blooms like this.

At the moment, Lemon Lime is starting to bloom. It has been amazing over the past few days to literally watch it's stalk shoot up from one day to the next and is now roughly 18" tall.

There are so many incredible beauties you all have shared through your photos and wondered what's blooming for you or soon will be.

My Amaryllis are all potted up in fresh soil in the basement.I just hope they perform better than last year when the 2 months are over.Last year there was nary a bloom for the first time since I've cultivated them. I did have bloom in the summer when they were out for their summer vacation.I told them that this is their last chance if they don't perform this winter they will be compost no matter what their pedigree.
