Hippeastrum roseum, does anyone know if this is a valid species or a
hybrid?  I've seen it marked as a synonym for Hippeastrum stylosum as well
as Hippeastrum puniceum and called Hippeastrum equestre (syn. puniceum) but
what is it truly?  Also, does anyone know where this plant is endemic?

Does anyone know what the correct spot is for this plant?  It seems Thailand
sells them like crazy on e-bay as whatever name they decided for the day!

I've thought the plant seems to be a form of H. puniceum but I'm not quite
sure what the valid idea is..
