    Armorel's Hippeastrum unknown cultivar (nickname 'Pinky') x 1 Flowering

Plant: Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) |

Pinky was given to me by my best friend as a New Year Gift in January 2000. That makes her eight years old now. Pinky isn’t her real name but she arrived as a bare bulb with no label and, since she has pink flowers, that’s what I call her.

She’s grown well over the past eight years and flowered on at least four occasions but now she’s severely cramped in her pot because she has two daughter bulbs competing for space. The pot was extremely misshapen – as you can see in the photo!

So I tipped them out of the pot and repotted them in separate pots so they all had room to grow and thrive. Will all three bloom this year or will it just be Pinky who upholds the family honour?

Watch this space!
