Thank you, Amy! Yes it is beautiful! I particularly like these that have more white in them than red & for the veining on the petals!

Yes, it seems all my Amaryllis have finished flowering for this year. I only have about 10 plants now after the mealy bugs did away with the rest of them. But this year I'm using Neen Oil on them & so they shouldn't get infested nor suffer because of them.

My son gave me two Clivia plants about 3 years ago. They were also infested but I managed to keep them a little more under control. I've been inspecting them often & removing the bugs. But they were still crippling the plants so I got some Neem Oil online & after 3-4 applications it seems I've been able to clear them away as I've not seen any for a couple of weeks & the new leaves are growing strongly again.

My son still has a few plants but his never got mealy bug.

David where do you put the Neem oil, do you put it on the foliage ?

Yes, you make up a solution of Neem Oil + liquid soap, put it in a sprayer & spray the foliage of infected plants.
