Amaryllis Seed Pod And Seeds

This is an update to my previous garden blog entry on pollinating an Amaryllis. The image above is of a seed pod that split this weekend and the image below it is what the seeds actually look like.

   Amaryllis Seed And Seed Pod

I hope that these garden blog entries are useful and detail just how easy it is to expand your indoor garden by giving mother nature a helping hand. I'm still waiting on six more seed pods to ripen and split so I can collect the seeds.

  1. Great photo! What I noticed about amaryllis seeds is that they feel so leafy and frail, and that it's almost impossible to feel the nut. Fascinating to think that those small things will grow to be a big bulb.

  2. I know what you mean. When I got my very first batch of seeds I thought there was no way a plant would grow from something that looked like tissue paper. But sure enough I sowed them and got seedlings and now I can't believed I ever doubted it was possible.

      I bought from ebay the seeds of Amarilis, bbut dont know how to plant it. I soak it in the water for 1 hour, then i put it on the soil, am i right? kindly give me and advice..tks

  3. I got one for Christmas, it bloomed beautifully. I cut one stem down, but not the other because it appeared to be blooming again. (It looked like a garlic clove bunch on top of the stem. Well it has started to split and looks just like your photo's. (Thanks for posting these..I thought I had killed it by the looks of the seeds)

    So, instead of looking at them with a magnifying glass, I'll sow them...any suggestions on times & depths?

  4. Hi Kara,

    See this post about how to plant them.

    Thank you for your posts and for all of the information. My elderly neighbor gave me an amaryllis and it flowered so beautifully. She had a stroke a couple of days ago and I was upste that she may not be able to teach me how to take care of them. Her amaryllis has a huge seed pod (of course I didn't know what it was until now). Thank you so much. I know Ms. Flo would be proud of me. Hopefully, she will come home soon and enjoy our gardens which we both love so much.

  6. Hi Anon,

    I hope your neighbor comes home soon and makes a quick recovery. Good luck to both of you with your plants.

    Do you let the seed pod ripen while still in the garden or do you cut the pods off

    1. I let the Amaryllis seed pods ripen on the plant.

      After I have harvested the seed pods, will that bulb flower again? Or does it have to be thrown out?
