Thank you very much for your comments. I agree that Hippeastrum flower
No 1 is somewhat similar to Hippeastrum puniceum. However, I wonder
about its bright red petals and dark red eye in the throat. I have
other Hippeastrum puniceum with orange petals and cream throat and
they looks different.  It is very difficult for me to clarify flower
No2. Some people told me that is Hippeastrum Johnsonii. In my area,
they make a mistake by giving it the name of Hippeastrum equestre. The
third flower is a hybrid with 6 flowers/flower stalk. It it a hybrid
of H. vitatum?
Best regard,
