The Q&A Archives: Amaryllis Propagation

Question: Can I propagate amaryllis from seed after the flower dries up?

Answer: Yes, they you can propagate them from seeds. Sow seeds when ripe -- they will be black. Germination takes 4 to 6 weeks indoors if the soil temperature is kept 70 to 75F. Lay the seeds on their sides in the soil for best results. It will be a few years before the resulting bulbs are large enough to blossom. Amaryllis can also be propagated by dividing offsets that grow off the parent bulb. Offsets will form within a year or two on bulbs planted outdoors in the ground, but I haven't had it happen on amaryllis grown indoors.
