Wonderful collection. My favourites are Alfresco and the untagged amaryllis whose picture is shown below. Is it a cross? The shape of this amaryllis is similar to "Samba" amaryllis.

Khan Sb , very nice collection, So you like large doubles, To me it is overall impact, it is combination of colour, form and proportion/symmetry.
Most whites have a slight ting of red which becomes more apparent as the flower ages. Even your pure white nymph bas a blush on tips of petals.
Some doubles for you to enjoy.

I noticed that the size of the pots used for Alfresco and Rozetta are quite large. They appear to be bigger than 14 inch pots. A 10 inch pot would have been sufficient for newly purchased bulb. Plants and bulbs should be gradually adjusted according to the size of the pot. It's generally better if a freshly placed bulb is put in a 10 inch pot and gradually shifted to a larger pot as the roots develop.

To grow newly bought Amaryllis in pots it is advisable to only use a pot slightly larger than the bulb.
