You can see the long stem of the flower, which lifted it well above the flag leaf. That
did not happen with my obviously weakened one, I also thought, that the bloom time
would last much longer, than it did in mine. Well, the next one is probably between 12
and 18 months away, we will see better then.

This is not a m.ornata. This stems with buds Hippeastrum reticulatum var. striatifolium 'mrs. garfield'. It is often grown in South-East Asia.
