A few weeks ago I harvested some seeds from several different Hippeastrum (amaryllis) plants. These seeds are difficult to germinate unless floated in water. At the time of harvesting, the stems and pods had browned and split open. I allowed the seeds to dry for about three days. Then I filled an old container with tap water and some charcoal. Below you can see what the seeds look like after about 2 weeks. I'll probably plant them by the end of this week.
