Hi Everyone,

    I've been reading quite a bit about Hippeastrum lately and I've read several 
opinions on these two plants.  Supposedly they're both selections of true 
Hippeastrum species, Chico being Cybister and Sihouette being Reticulatum Var. 
Striatifolium.  Is this correct or are they both hybrids of both species?  I 
don't understand why a company would market these "species" at such low prices?  

Does anyone have any idea?  

This is a picture of Silhouette posted by someone on another forum.  

Here is a link to Chico from IBS

Thanks guys :)
