Hippeastrum 'San Antonio Rose'

It is also called Hippeastrum aulica-traubii. We can know that it is hybrided between H. aulicum and H. traubii. The back of the leaves have red lines.


  1. Hi, I found your blog searching for Hippeastrum. I also cultivate some bulbs:)

  2. Hi Rainlily, infortunately, by the moment I don't have Hippeastrum bulbs to trade, just a few Habranthus seeds. All my Hipp. bulbs are young plants, mostly from seed. If you have seeds of your Hippeastrum, it would be easier, don't you think?
    Merry Christmas

  3. Hi Cris,
    It is easier to mail seeds certainly.
    And 2~3CM seedling is easy to package and mail too. Where are you and is it easy to get Hipp. seeds in your country?
    What species of Habranthus seeds do you have? I have some Habranthus, too.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

  4. Hi Stephen,
    Here (I'm in Portugal) is not easy to get Hippeastrum seeds, only by swaping or buying (I've bought some to Brazil). Besides, mine are difficult to flower, this year only one bloomed, the vitattum, and I didn't got seeds from it:(
    The Habranthus are easier to bloom, that's why I got seeds of them. Now I've seeds of Habranthus tubispathus yellow form, and Habranthus robustus , and also Zephyranthes minima.
    Oh, I remembered now, I've some very little bulbills on the Hipp. striatum (I guess), but certainly you already have this one. If you want, you can write to me to my email that is on my blog profile;)
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!!
