Hi all,

Hippeastrum calyptratum is a greenish-flowered species from Brazil.  I have 
several seedling bulbs of calyptratum, but none have flowered for me 
yet.  If any do, I will store the pollen.

The pollen needs to be dried; and for longer storage than about a week, it 
needs to be frozen.  See my notes at:
