My amaryllis decided to bloom in July. I noticed them growing & brought them out. One of them developed a nice fat seed pod. I left it on the plant waiting for it to turn brown & burst open.
Mother nature decided to give us some fantastic wind that blew the pot over & the seed stalk still green about a half inch seperated from the plant.
Can i save these seeds still? This was the first time they set seed & I was eagerly waiting for them to ripen so I could grow them.
If you break open the seedpod, be sure to check for the “kernel”. It should be about the size and shape of the little kernel between the 2 halves of a peanut. No kernel – no seedlings.
Personally I’d wait. Mature seeds do better than immature seeds.
Germination time depends on the variety. The shortest time in my garden was 9 days. 3 or 4 weeks is more typical. 2 months is a bit much but I’ve seen that too. It seems the fancier the parents, the longer the germination.
