I looked again on the Wiki and see that my plant looks like Nhu's H.

On my first run through the Hippeastrum section of the Wiki I only looked
at the first H. striatum photo, that of Lee Poulsen, and that doesn't look
like my plant. Its flowers are red and actinomorphic, while mine plants'
are orange and zygomorphic. Plus the text says they are about 2 inches
across, while mine is larger. Nhu's plant also has zygomorphic flowers.

Nhu, did your plant come from BX 183? Is it self-fertile?
