I bought these as bulbs from Walmart about 2 years ago. Only 2 bulbs survived. I could not remember what they were. I described them to a friend and after scouring the internet, I too, believe they are amaryllis. They are very tropical, and have 4 blooms on each stem. There is one single large stem, that is hollow. These bloom for 7 – 10 days. After you cut the stem off, you may be able to get it to grow more flowers. They are very tropical.
I love watching them begin to bloom. I remember the first time I saw these blooming, I could compare them to giving birth. I used to think there was nothing in the world that was equivalent to giving birth, but I was wrong. Watching these beautiful flowers bloom for the first time is very similar to how I felt when I gave birth to my beautiful children.

These have gotten very tall. It looks like one plant is going to have two stems this time. The other just has one. This will be the second year for these plants. I have photos below. They have not fully bloomed yet. Each day, they open a little bit more.

The photos below were taken yesterday. So as you can see from the photos above, they look so much different each day they open a little bit more.
