Dancing Queen among the doubles has the largest flowers and multiplies very rapidly. Double Dream & Ice Queen introduced this year are also very pretty. Benito among the doubles has a very unusual shape and found it more prettier than Celica (also an orange double). Here's a picture of Benito available at MoreGreen.

Khan sahib you have good collection and hope these will increase the beauty of your garden. I don't have Alfresco but it is my favorite amaryllis because of its color and shape of petals. Last year one of my friend gave me baby bulb of pink Nymph and this year I hope for blooms and bulblets.
Just talked with Pride seeds, still they have seven colors, so hurry up if someone is interested to purchase.

All amaryllis are of very good quality, I recommend that you cut the neck with a sharp knife leaving only half an inch and dust the cut with a fungicide.

Khan sahib
Ice queen and double are still in my mind and remaining five I forgot. Today I called him again and bulbs are almost finished, tomorrow morning he will tell me about the remaining one because they have closed the store now.

Brig Sahib
I never used fungicide, are these available in the market easily? And please guide me, how to use this.

I bought from Chanandeen,
03 Bulbs............ Rs:2250 (750 EACH)
Packing Charges Rs: 50
Postage..............Rs: 50
Total..................Rs: 2350

Today I placed order for two bulbs from Pride Seeds and he said I will have to pay 1600 on receiving. It means VPP charges will be same.
