The flowers are pale pink with a mesh pattern. The edge of the petals is slightly wavy. Pedicels and ovaries are green with a yellow tint.

Comment by Faust:

There are no pure Hippeastrum reticulatum var. striatifolium … at least I haven't seen it. Distinguish Hippeastrum reticulatum var. striatifolium from Hippeastrum reticulatum var. striatifolium Mrs. Garfield is simple. Hippeastrum reticulatum var. striatifolium is a miniature species with an unusually slow growth. And their flowers are different, if you see it you can't confuse it. My hippeastrum calipratum gave 10 leaves over the same period of time Hippeastrum reticulatum var. striatifolium only produces a third leaf.

  • Hippeastrum striatum 'Biritiba Ussu'
  • Hippeastrum striatum var. 'Saltro'

Elena Shcherbakova: Hippeastrum striatum 'Saltgo' MP 13135 from Mauro Peixoto from Brazil, grown from seed.


Now it has already grown up and with the next watering in a pot, children were found right on the surface, crawling out from under the scales of the mother's onion to the surface and already covered with dark scales with a formed miniature bottom and even a leaf that had turned up! They look like lily bulbs! This is the first time I've seen this, and I haven't seen a single photo of such kidding on the net. After the photo session, I put the children with their mother and, when separating the upper scales at the very neck of an adult bow, I found another child that had already crawled out almost to the surface.

Not all types of hippeastrum are described in the article. Some of the hippeastrum species, as studied by botanists, have been attributed to other genera, such as Habranthus, Sprekelia, Zephyranthes, etc.

Unfortunately, there is very little information about many species, and many species are endangered.

Species hippeastrum cannot be found in industrial, commercial sale. They are grown by foreign farms that are engaged in the preservation of rare botanical species.
