The following two names were coined using the name Sprekelia, but they refer to species are now generally regarded as better suited to Hippeastrum. We provide links to help you locate appropriate information.

Growth

Sprekelia formosissima is common in cultivation, planted in warm climates or raised in pots in colder climates, or planted and lifted, much as the gladiolus. Even when well grown, bulbs often do not bloom every year. In a grouping of about a dozen bulbs, only two or three may bloom in any given year.[10][11]
