Dell spiked my interest when he mentioned that years ago someone donated 
seed of Hipp.angustifolium to the APLS SX. I was one who received seed of 
this magnificent Hippeastrum. Most of the seed germinated and for two, maybe 
three seasons they thrived in their community pot.
But the season that I was counting on potting the individual plants up, the 
community pot was stolen. I used to encourage anyone to come in and see what 
I had and if I had something they liked and I had some to spare I would 
either sell or swap.
I'm a little more discriminaating now as to who I allow to visit.
The person who has them now would be the only person in Australia who has. I 
hope they enjoy them.
