Rhodophiala rhodolirion

Rhodophiala is a genus of southern South American Amaryllidaceae that look like small-flowered hippeastrums. This pretty amarilidaceae has its natural habitat in the Chilean portion of the Andes Mountains. They have usually only one flower per stem, each flower some 6 cm diameter. Their colour can range from white to pink, and the flowers will have either red dots or stripes.Rhodophiala rhodolirion is adecuate for borders, bulb beds, and specially for pots and containers.

To grow from seed, material must be sown as fresh as possible. Seeds can be floated in water with good germination. Good seeds will germinate in 2-3 days.
However, they can be sown directly under 3-5mm of potting mix with good results. Stratified sowing in Autumn, using a mix of one part regular garden soil, two parts compost, one part river sand and one part perlite. Display seeds on the surface and barely cover them with some sand to keep them on their place when watering. Do not remove the bulbils before one year. They will bloom when the bulb is fully mature (third to fourth year from seed). This bulb produces only one bulbil every 2 or 3 years.

Fertilize at least once a year (during Autumn) with an organic fertilizer.
