Second spike of Amaryllis Papilio


Second spike of Amaryllis Papilio (amaryllis papilio)

The second spike's first bud is going open. I think i have to cut the first spike. the flowers are fading. I've waited till the last moment since i like this Amaryllis's flowers so much :-)

This is lovely Holantina, mine has only just come out, I forgot to start watering it! Do you have other varieties, I can see you have 'Tango'.

Thanks for the comment.
I have Papilio and Tango in bloom right now and Charisma, Gervase and Picotee in bud. They are really taking their time and it goes very s-l-o-w-l-y....
My Apple Blossom and Blossom Peacock (the latter is a double blooming one) are still not showing any signs of blooming. That's too bad, but with Amaryllis you sometimes have to be (very) patient LOL.
I'll upload pictures of them very soon :-)

I look forward to seeing them all. I know what you mean about some bulbs taking their time yet others are suddenly in flower as soon as your back is turned!
