My first flower on seed-grown Hippeastrum brasilianum is open.  It is a 
long white trumpet, fragrant, with slightly frilly edges.  I have the form 
with purple along the midrib on the outside of the sepals.  I've never seen 
this species in bloom before!  I guess I ought to go take a picture of 
it.  I'm quite thrilled.
