...keep in a fairly cool place, this one lived in a north facing window.
Two stems emerged, each one with a fat flower bud. No leaves, they come later. Flowers are far more important.
Growth speed was phenomenal, some days it gained a full inch.
But it seems that even though this plant is sold under the name Amaryllis, it might really be Hippeastrum, according to Wikipedia.
Whatever it's real name, it's gorgeous.There are FOUR giant blooms on the shorter stem, and SIX blooms on the tall one.
