Hi, R.J.! I know that Mauro Peixoto offers some Amaryllid seed. I've 
ordered Hippeastrum species seed from him before. I've not seen him 
offer Griffinia seed, but he appears to grow a number of species 
(whether just one plant or more, I don't know). You might inquire with 
him, mpeixoto at, to see if he ever has Griffinia seed 
available. The Hippeastrum seeds I have ordered before germinated well. 
You can see some of his pictures at,
