Lovely flower picture, Aleyna, but I'm not sure it's Hippeastrum Reticulatum, though it may be a hybrid form. For one thing it doesn't seem to have the white stripe along the leaf, typical of Reticulatum, nor does it seem to have the fine network of veins on the petal, again characteristic of this species.

Thank you David,
Well, I'm not the one to arguee with you or the Botanic who identified it... lol :)

Don't worry about it because as Shakespeare once said: "A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet" so whatever the true botanical name might be let's accept it for what it is - a lovely flower! :)
