pollinated your Amaryllis-Hippeastrum flower and you've waited patiently for the seed pods to ripen and open the next step is collecting the seeds. The Amaryllis Hippeastrum seeds may look a little unusual to you if you don't have a lot of experience with seeds and collecting seeds from various plants. The seeds are black and paper-like and almost flat except for the embryo in the center of the seed.
If you place an Amaryllis seed between your thumb and index finger you'll be able to tell which are the viable Amaryllis seeds because there will be a pronounced "bump" in the middle of the otherwise flat seed. Any seeds that you can't feel the embryo in failed and are just chaff and can be tossed out because nothing will sprout from them. The seeds that have the embryo should be planted soon after you've collected them.
