Hippeastrom seed germination

Jim Shields told me about a floatation method. I use a clear sweet-roll 
container, which I have dutifully emptied of it contents, with about 3 
inches of tap water for the seeds to float in. I started a batch of my 
'Piquant' selfed seeds a week ago in my garden window and have already 
started having seed germinate. I used this same technique last year on 
'Minerva' x 'Red Lion' seeds and had about 90% germination.
