Chico is a spider shaped amaryllis which is said that it is very similar to original cybister.cybisters are unique and special due to their shape and color.they are always on top in wish list of amaryllis lovers.cybisters are are very different in shape and design from other hippeastrums…hippeastrum evergreen and lima are also cybisters. according to my experience only lima is vigorous and robust grower..it blooms and makes offsets readily..evergreen and chico has tendency to rot.
hippeastrum chico is very delicate and colorful amaryllis.its petals turn backward and then it looks like a bird flying …it has very striking form with Ivory, soft green and deep burgundy hues. if you are in search of something different then chico is best option.chico’s flower stalk has maroon tinge which make it very special.here are few photos of hippeastrum chico.
