Pam, I have several large, glossy mahogany-red seed pods of Hippeastrelia seed ripening. Strangely, they bloomed well but the companion Sprekelia have done nothing. Will sow some seed and see what results. This spring has been hard because there have been rains on and off for weeks! Of course, we can't complain about rain! -Cynthia Mueller, Central Texas
