Dear Ton, 

I've read that Pamianthe peruviana is the most closely related amaryllid to Paramongaia. I grow and bloom it, but I cannot get pollen again until next spring. Also, accor ding to what I have read, the so-called "pancratoid" amaryllids which have a central corona in the flowers like hymenocallis, phaedranassa, or stenomesson, are also related more closely than, e.g, hippeastrum. or rhodophiala or, much less, lycoris which is not from the New World. 

Personally, I'd lump them all into Senegalia and refer to them as Acacia in my personal correspondence so as not to offend any of the traditionalists.   Just kidding!

Hallo all 


Today I was in my little greenhouse and saw that my Paramongaia has a flower 

For the first time. Very exciting. 

I think it costs still a few weeks when the Paramongaia is flowering. 

I was reading when I will get seeds , I must have another clone/plant 

Is that right? And who can help me with pollen? 

Another question is, is there any possibility to cross this Paramongaia with 
another Amaryllidaceae? 

Such as Hippeastrum, Lycoris, Hymenocallis or so. 


Please let me know. 


Thank you very much for your advice 


Kind regards
