Greetings All,

As for the trivia questions:

What is the largest flower of a diploid species Hippeastrum? (must be diploid 
and species rank, non-hybrid; forma and variety acceptable)  I'll accept more 
than one correct answer as I feel it's a matter up for reasonable discussion.

What is the smallest growing, shortest, not necessisarily smallest flower, 
Hippeastrum? (diploid again, species...etc.)

Does anyone out there grow H. puniceum v. haywardii?   Does it exist as H. 

Is Amaryllis espiritensis, H. espiritense or H. soratense? Is it in 

What is the sound of a Narcissus bulb fly maggot in a kitchen garbage 
disposal?  (The answer for that one is - "Satisfying."  More on that another time.)

Be well,
