So my spider lilies (H harrisiana) have set seed and I harvested the lot last week (about 60). They're still green, but ripe nonetheless as I found out. But I don't know how to get these to germinate :S I have put some in a sealed pot with rice to dry completely, some others in another sealed pot with wet paper and another batch sown in small pots indoors. None (wetter ones) have shown signs of life yet. Anyone with experience?

Same here! I am going to plant mine shallowly in a pot. My plant originally grew in a flood plain where crawfish made mounds so the seeds must have started off exposed to wet conditions.??

Wow, it's been three years without comments and now you've arrived :p Anyway, I've managed to get them growing and held onto them for two years, but eventually their third winter got them. I don't know how or what, but I assume not enough water. They seemed mummufied and hollow almost. Anyway, I've given up on them for the time being. Maybe in a few years again
