Am i cheating?

Am i cheating?

I'm new to GoY and i'm not sure wether i may place pics of plants i grow indoors. This is a gorgeous and very showy Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) I've bought it as "Popov", but i've seen it also by the name "clown". I know there is a very famous clown named A. Popov, so i think it makes sense. The flowers are indeed one happy statement: enjoy!
I grow lots of Hippeastrums since they help me go through the winter. Being born in the tropics, it's difficult for me to get used to the winter and the fact that almost nothing grows then.
Thanks to growing H. indoors i still feel the excitement of seeing when a new plant emerges from the ground and watching it grow a bloom :-)

Lovely colour. We need to have houseplants too, especially during the winter.
