I purchased 2 amaryllis form Gardener's supply company. One has already arrived (I purchased them at separate times) and the other will soon. The one is growing. I love to watch it grow. This one is red & the other is red and white. Such beauty. I will upload pixs when they bloom. They are suppose to bloom around Christmas time.

Sounds like you probably gor 'Red Lion' and 'Minerva', they are typically what "general merchandise" stores carry. Nothing wrong with these varieties as they are tried and true! I have RL but only seedling from 'Minerva', 6 or 7 out of 22 total that I grew to blooming size. Sent the others to my GF in GA. She can go them in the ground.

I have had several in bloom already, all new purchases and they came into flower very quickly! The smallest I have ever seen is 'Little Star', totally cute! Next ones to open buds will be 'LaPaz', a Cybister Hybrid nad 'Exotic Star', who I am thinking may be a papilio hybrid.

I think I posted images already and if I didn't, I will!

I got it from gardeners.com. Mine has bloomed yet but I'll send you a pix nevertheless. I love to watch it grow. I looked on the web site, and the one is a cherry nymph, (it says it is a vivid red bloom with 25 petals) and the other which I'm still haven't received but should shortly. It is either (I can't remember which one I ordered) dancing queen or picotee. I bought them already potted. As I said I just looked on their site and they are sold out now.

I suppose I will plant them outside in the Spring.

Well, LA PAZ is NOT who this one is and I really do not want another NOID, even if it is a pretty one!

Suspect it could be RED PEARL since it is only 7" across.

Next one to bloom is supposed to be ZOMBIE, a double flowered variety. Will know soon enough.

Looking forward to seeing who yours turns out to be - if we can figure it out!

This one lives up to it's name as it is very "exotic" looking. I figure it has papilio in there somewhere.
