I might have suceed

263/5000
A few months ago I posted a photo of my red amarilis. Balcony suggested one of his blogs, which shows how to reproduce amaryllis from the seeds, which form after the flowers have wilted. It seems I succeeded. The first leaves are coming up.

That's great! Soon you will be ready to try crossing your Hippeastrum with other members of the Amaryllidaceae family.

Thank you Hywel :)

Thank you Balcony. I need your help and guidance. As you can see, I planted all the seeds in the same pot. Now I need to separate them. Do you suggest I let it grow a little longer, or should I remove it for individual pots while they are still small?

It is OK for the first season. I have several that have been in the original pots for 2 years, but after that they need to go into individual pots, keeping the root system as intact as possible. Best done when they go dormant. My xHippeastrelias (a cross between Hippeastrum and Sprekelia) are finally getting big enough to flower next year [fingers crossed], after 4 years.
