Hippeastrum petiolatum

This species was collected and named by several collectors, the plant is one in the same. It is a striatum variant with a reported 55 chromosome count. It does not make seeds and multiplies by those little bulblets. Now this plant has the same leaves, flowers, bulblets, light colored pollen, same color flowers, and a trifid stigma. How close do you have to be to see that it is a striatum type? The flower is almost 3 inches across the face, and some folks have crossed it with tets, like the Dutch hybrids in an effort to develop minis. Not a bad idea. (BC)
