Hi Dianegai, are you interested in hippeastrum reticulata? Maybe a collector already has this one....I have a couple to spare.

Good morning, thanks for the reply....it is 5.9c right now, but the sun is starting to come out, not like yesterday when the sun never showed up so I am thankful for small mercies.

Good morning Muddy, it looks like what you have there is a pink crinum lily, and doing very well too.

Thanks for that Chocolate picked mine up in Innisfail near Cairns last year, had peanut shell around them but this was a mistake as a black caterpillar nearly killed them eating the centre out but no more problems since removing this :P
