Amaryllis AngloAmerican Hybrid seeds created!
Sunday, 15 Apr 12 Partly Sunny 12°C / 54°F
Amaryllis AngloAmerican Hybrid seeds created from the pollen that sgardener sent me from her Hippeastrum Sydney on 31st March 2012. I used some of the pollen to fertilize one of the Amaryllis that was open at that moment & looked as if it were ready to receive pollen. Apparently I was right because one seedpod formed & was brought to term. I “harvested” the seed on Monday 16th April 2012.
