Try Edensblooms in Arizona at they 
Amaryllis (Hippeastrum parodii) "Germa" for sale and many other Hipps for 
quite reasonable prices.
I've included the URL above.
I've purchased from them for a number of years and have always been pleased.
They also sell on ebay which sometimes carries additional items, but I find 
their website quite good.

All the best,
Paul (in windy and cool central ca.)
