Joe and Sandra's Hippeastrums

I have just stepped in to the fascinating world of Hippeastrums. For 11 years I have had Hippeastrum Johnsonii growing on the south side of my house. I have always liked those flowers, but never really took the time to care for them or to inquire about what they really were. This past year, i took an interest in them and have found out that there are many other species of this same flower and tons of hybrids.
Today, I have over 20 of the hybrids and I am wanting to have one of each one, lol!! I am sure that will be an impossible task because there are over 600 hybrids.
My Johnsonii flowers have finished their blooming phase and I am seeing a few seed pods beginning to form. I hope to collect some seeds and watch them grow for 4 years before blossoming into beautiful new flowers!!
