This is Hippeastrum evansiae, another native to Bolivia.  It is somewhat variable, especially if you include H. anzaldoi as a synonym of evansiae.  For many years, no one could seem to get seeds from evansiae.  It is self-sterile, and there was apparently only one single clone of it in cultivation.  Recently, several other clones have appeared, and we are now able to produce seeds of this nice little species.

My #2053 (above and next one below)

643561-1
This one was collected by the late Bill Janetos in Bolivia.

643563-2
This one is not white to the human eye, only to the iPhone camera.  It looks to be a nice light lemon yellow to my eyes.  It came to me from Telos Rare Bulbs by way of William Hoffmann.  My #3010.

Luca, et al.,

I have produced some seeds, and have sent some out, mainly to folks who have sent me seeds in the past.  Overseas postage has gone up considerably in the last few years, so I do not ship seeds out willy nilly anymore.  I suppose I should send my leeft over seeds to one of the seed distributions.  Hippeastrum seeds do not keep well after the first few months.  So i have not gotten around to sending any to the SeedExs for the last couple of years.
