Having only ever having one cross that was worth keeping from my many and 
time consuming crosses I find your sentiments exactly what I have thought 
myself a number of times. Thank you for your words and they are easy to 
understand and complete without the need for over intellectualising the 
appreciation of something so pleasing as the sight of a bed of flowering 

I would like to add that symptoms of inadequate cultural applications are 
sometimes expressed in hippeastrums similar to viral infections and/or viral 
infections sometimes dissappear when bulbs have their growing conditions 
right only for them to return when the plant is under stress. I am just a 
gardener that loves bulbs and the foliage and flowers they produce. I am 
trying to create a place that more people in my part of the world can enjoy 
them and hippeastrums play their part.

Kind Regards and Best Wishes
