Yes they can! Some gardeners really enjoy growing amaryllis from seed because they cross-pollinate so readily, and the child flower is almost always different from the parent flowers. The only drawback is that it's a long process - it'll be a couple years before the seed you plant actually produces flowers. This article will tell you all about the process: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/amaryllis-hippeastrum/amaryllis-seed-propagation.htm
