Is there a picture posted somewhere?  This sounds nice.  

I always get at least one Amaryllis bulb from the 'marts at Christmas &
lucked up on some 2 for $5 this year - the one I kept was supposed to be
the plain white kind - it has two bloom stalks, both are double and
ruffled/frilled!  I usually don't much care for doubled lacy flowers,
but this thing is absolutely gorgeous! Looks like some truly exotic

So am eager to find more winter blooming 'Linda proof' plants.  Dennis,
is wattii sensitive to neglect?  I do extremely well with Christmas
cactus, store bought Amaryllis bulbs (not the ones I save till following
years), and one African violet, but have pretty much killed every other
indoor plant I ever had, except most indoor started vegetable seedlings.
