I've had this Amaryllis for four years now - it is called Christmas Star. After flowering I make sure it stays well fed, putting it out all summer in a hot sunny place to recharge its bulb, then dry it out from Sept - Nov and then bringing it in and getting it going by a little watering (water sparingly otherwise you get loads of leaves!). Hopefully should bloom at Christmas but mine is a little late this year!
Used RonnieAG's tip of photographing against the black TV screen.
