I'm far from an expert but have had a quick look at the PBS Wiki-could it be this http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/files/Nerine/Nerine_gibsonii_CM.jpg

Update on the sowing of Nerine
I sowed in a mix of sand and soil with a little extra sand on the top. Most of the seeds where in the top but some where put down a bit in the mix.
This was done in November/december and it has been a "cold winter with low temperatures and only recently it has been above 15 degrees celsius for longer periods and last week it was above 15C also at nights so there have been some germination in the pot.
At first it almost looked like grass but looking at the pics make hope it is Nerines. There are in the second picture a "fatter" leaf that might be the real thing and the rest just weed but I hope all are the real deal but I would like to be advised if I am wrong or if I have a lot of small Nerines coming along.

Once again thanks for the seeds :)  8)

All the best

They certainly look like nerine seedlings to me Joackim.  I planted Gerd's Nerine bowdenii v. wellsii in the autumn and after a long wait a few came up and then more kept germinating for 2 months. Now I have over thirty vigorous little plants.  Hopefully they will be hardy.

I saw N. bowdenii Stephanie bulbs for sale at Jacques Amand's booth at the RHS. Didn't risk taking them back, silly me.

Massonia,

My first thought on seeing your white unknown with the pink stripe was Nerine pudica.  Looks very similar anyway.
Cheers.
