These superb amaryllis relatives display large trumpet-shaped flowers and thin strap-shaped leaves. These seeds have been collected from red and pink forms of these gorgeous plants high in the Andes. Plants will do best in well-drained compost in large pots or a protected scree.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
