You might recall that I bought 4 amaryllis bulbs from White Flower Farm a few months back in an amazing sale. The 4 that I bought were Samba, Nymph, Aphrodite, and Dancing Queen. I planted the bulbs a few weeks apart so that I could get continuous blooms. It's Aphrodite's turn to show off. And show off she does. She has stunning double petals of white with a hint of pink. I noticed that this bloom does not have a stigma or pollen, so I'm guessing that this is a hybrid. So I won't be able to try to pollinate the flower to produce seeds. I tried to pollinate the Samba flower, but it was a dismal failure. It started to produce seed pods, and then it quickly failed and didn't produce true seed pods! It's much harder than it looks, I'm not sure what went wrong, I followed Mr. Brown Thumb's article to the T and put the pollen on the stigma, but I guess it has to be just right to produce the seed pods.
