Hits and Misses-Reblooming Amaryllis Update

I'm not really sure what exactly happened, it's almost like damping off, but what i find it referred to is "stem collapse". How original. Anyway, it happened to one of the amaryllis. The buds were really never very big, but the stalk was growing well. Alas, better luck next year. I'll mark the pot and see how he grows over the summer and wait until NEXT year before tossing him. 

The 'Lady Jane', however, is putting on a show.

Not sure what happened. I came home the other day to find this.

The 'Lady Jane' amaryllis is completely making up for the depleted stem. She looks wonderful, and just in time for a weekend of snow/sleet/rain. Another promise of Spring!
