Crossed hippeastrum blooms

Sorry about the watermarks. Ever since Houzz took over Gardenweb, they seem to have disabled html so you have to upload images there. Made me a bit nervous so I started watermarking all my images I upload there just to be on the safe side.

The crosses below came from one member who sent me seeds years ago and it was pretty neat to see them finally bloom this spring.

The parents "Ebay 1" and "Ebay 2" were shared on the thread where I posted the pictures: Crossed amaryllis blooming: Thread on Amaryllis/Hippeastrum It's further down the thread, posted by dondeldux. It appears to have taken after the mother rather than the father.

The above two pictures of Exotica x Mocca are of the same bulb. It sent up two scapes, four flowers each. I really liked the coloring of this one.

I'm not sure I like this one. It seems bland but it is something new.

 A couple of the Charisma x Selfed are blooming for the second year but this bulb is blooming for the first time and it's interesting that a lot of the speckling and dark red is gone. I really like the simpleness of this flower.
