Hippeastrum Tres Chic

Yippy, got my Hippeastrum Tres Chic to bloom. And thanks to Mei Kheng for passing me the bulbs. All that was done was to dry rest the bulbs for a month.

You kind of can tell it is a two-tone flower when the buds peek out from the sheath, for the rear portion is whitish green whilst the rest are a strong red/carmine colour.

Love the red and white, but the lines in the throat aren't that clean, probably due to weather. Now waiting for the Cherry Nymph to do the same.
