Hi, all.
I have about two cups of Amaryllis Belladonna seeds (they look like tiny bulbs) that I've collected this past month. I'm going to plant some of them, but would be happy to share the rest for postage with anyone interested in trying to grow them. My amaryllis belladonnas are a hybrid, so I don't know what color flowers they will grow. Most of the flowers that they came from are bright pink with yellow centers, though a few were a solid bright pink (both colors of flowers were on the same stalk). Also, I understand that it will take six or seven years for these to be large enough to flower. I just started growing the seeds myself last year as an experiment just to see what I get :)
I'll post a picture of the flowers as soon as my husband can help me with it.
