This year large quantities of amaryllis bulbs were imported which have foot ball size double flowers, will they naturalized here and are capable of pollinate anyway to produce awesome hybrids with your collection ?

I have not bought any and have not seen any football size doubles displayed on the forum.

I purchased almost all varieties from all popular vendors in Lahore. The bloom size was very good and doubles u can say around 10 inches. But not the size of football. I have shared them already on my post

Dear Sir Arif. They are about to bloom. Most of them have achieved their stick height and will start opening soon.
I am observing a strange thing also that my hippeastrum are taking more time to bloom then usual
