Hans can you tell me more about how you sow and grow on your seeds? Are they surface sown? Does the bulb grow on the surface

Hans can you tell me more about how you sow and grow on your seeds? Are they surface sown? Does the bulb grow on the surface

Mark : Sowing of this Amaryllids seeds like Scadoxus ,Haemanthus and some other is not difficould ,
Make a bigger pot full with a mix of 50% organic + 50% mineralic material ,water it with cooking water , and after cool you can sowing .Treat the seeds like I have descriptet in a realier mail ( with H2O2 1 % ) - lay the seeds on the surface , look for the radicels , and lay a bit scoria gravel between the seeds ,some weeks later will start the radicel ,and from there start the first leaves -dont disturb the seedlings ! You must be really patient -from some Scadoxus ( p.e. membranaceus ) it's need more than a year before start the leaves !!! - take this pots on a shady and warm envirement -be carefully with watering !
If you have more questions please write me !

Good luck !

Hans,

My H. coccineus never produce that dark a berry.  Mine are always bright red, never dark like that at all.  I wonder if just different provenance originally?  Interesting to see the pic of yours.
Cheers.

Sadly Luit died on 14th October 2016 - happily we can still enjoy his posts to the Forum

Hans,
this was a plant flowering for the first time from a bought bulb.
I was told it was very expensive.
I presume it will not set seed in our country.
