The small,low resolution picture is inadequate for positive Id,but it appears to be H.Striatum.If the color is a light tangerine/salmon color,with a cream,fading to green center,it is more likely to be Striatum,than Petiolatum,because Petiolatum is more red than orange.Also, Striatum usually has a taller, slim scape and larger flowers.

Hi,

The list had a question from Ton Wijnen about a mystery Hippeastrum, he 
attached a photo which meant his message was held. You can see the photo

Hello dear plantlovers


I have a question.

Is the Hippeastrum on the picture H. starkiorum?

Or another species? Puniceum? Petiolatum?

Who can help me?

 

Thank you very much

Kind regards

Ton Wijnen
