I have seeds from my neighbor who loves Amaryllis. How can I propagate them? I want to grow them in containers.

Amaryllis can be grown from seed, but it will take quite a while for the plant to be mature enough to produce a bloom. Sow the seed in peaty soil, about 1/16" inch deep. The seed will take from 21 to 70 days to germinate at temperatures of 65F to 75F degrees. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy wet. Once the sprout appears, keep in a brightly lit location at average household temperatures.
