Can you plant an amaryllis from a seed and if so what are the conditions it needs to be in

I have many seeds from my amaryllis plants. They have been very successful over the years. I have collected all the seeds at the end of the years and I want to know if there is anything I can do with them. I know that these flowers usually grow from bulbs but is it possible to grow them from seeds too? If so how do you recommend I grow them?

Answer: Hi Catherine, yes it is possible to grow them from seed but it takes a little while and that’s why growing them from bulbs is sometimes quicker. There is what is called the floating method which is one of the ways you can germinate them…I have attached some information for you to have a look. http://www.dayliliesinaustralia.com.au/hippeastrum-plants-bulbs/ I hope it helps
