Amaryllis Plants

Seeds From Bulb Plants


Blonzo added on March 14, 2018 | Answered

I fertilized my amaryllis. Now that the nubs have swollen into seed pods, do I clip them off or leave them on stem while I wait for them to turn color & crack open?

Leave them on the stem to ripen further. Once the pod is brown, the seeds are ready. It will take several years for seeds to develop a bulb big enough to bloom. Most amaryllis are hybrids; therefore, the flowers will not look exactly like the parent plant. Here is an article that discusses propagation methods: https://lancaster.unl.edu/hort/nebline/amaryllis.shtml
