Just out of curiosity given the topic, is anybody trying Rhodophiala x Hippeastrum crosses?  ..and also habranthus or Zephyranthes with Hippeastrum.  If these are possible it seems like a better way to get more pure yellow strains into Hippeastrum.  The yellows in these other genera are much better than what occurs in Hippeastrum.  Perhaps a good project for somebody.   Many other useful traits could be introduced as well.
