Hello Sandra....enjoyed your article! I would comment that I've found that if you float the seeds as soon as the pod splits open,....the gemination rate is exceptional and quicker than "dried" seeds. I've been propagating hippeastrums from seed this way for several years and was finally able to see my 1st adult grown from seed - bloom this year! Lee
Commonly called amaryllis and sometimes sold under the name amaryllis and the name of their cultivar. Anyone is welcome to join this group to learn, share, talk about and find help with their Hippies. Grab a chair, cup of coffee and have some fun!
