    Hippeastrum papilio Giveaway x 2

    Someone very generously gave me some Hippeastrum papilio bulbs. Along with the 5 large bulbs were attached offsets. Some of the offsets fell off in transit, and I'm offering them here as two sets, to be given by random number in a week.

    Winners pay shipping.

    This is a species Hippeastrum, not a hybrid. Flowers are spectacular. I don't have a decent photo (except of a wilted flower) so I'll give a link with both info and pictures:

    Here are the bulbs, which I've divided into two sets. There are 5 bulbs in each, although in one the top has been broken off. In the other, the fifth bulb is much smaller.

    I asked a friend who grows Hippeastrums about the red color. There is a fungal disease (red blotch) that produces streaks and spots on the plants and bulbs. I understand the bulbs also become reddish where the surface is slightly damaged or bruised. My friend was not concerned with these.

    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    What do you do when you see an endangered animal that eats only endangered plants?
