<<I also added an image to the mystery bulbs of what came labelled to me
as Hipp. puniceum album. However, it doesn't look like my other H.
puniceum and it is red.>>

This Hippeastrum seems to be a wanderer. I received the very same plant
approx. 7 years ago from Paul Christian labelled H. stylosum (which it
clearly isn't).  It is a nice plant of very modest proportions but I have
never been able to discover its true identity. Accidents and mistakes do
happen but I sometimes wonder how some plants manage to aquire their labels.
