Amaryllis vittata – I pollinate these flowers by hand, lightly dusting the pollen from the anther of one flower on to the stigma of another. I look forward to harvesting the seeds every year and growing new plants!
It was 6 years before seeds I planted actually flowered. Admittedly, there is nothing more thrilling than to see that stalk emerge from a bulb you’ve grown from seed. Patience is likely the biggest ingredient!
Happy Flowering Friday!
