Hi Shane,

Sow these seeds as if you were sowing other Hippeastrum seeds but you can
bury the seeds a bit deeper. A small portion of the seed should still be
exposed. Keep the seeds moist but not too moist. I've had terrible rotting
issues when the media stayed too moist - ok for other Hippeastrum, not for

Happy sowing,
