And I might add that Jim Waddick is of course correct -- you can't store 
any of the fleshy Amaryllidaceae seeds for very long.  Refrigeration does 
extend that storage period by a few months, but no more than that.

It works with Haemanthus as well.  It ought to help with Hymenocallis, 
Nerine, Scadoxus, and maybe others, but I haven't tried these.
