Hi Roland, Shelley, et al.,

As I recall, Hadeco in South Africa holds their Hippeastrum hybrid bulbs in 
a cold room (at 55°F perhaps?) for a period of time before packing and 
shipping to market -- or perhaps before replanting.  I remember being in a 
cold room full of wood trays of Hippeastrum bulbs on one visit there 
several years ago.
