Clivia seed

Hello Shmuel,

Once the seeds turn from green to red they are ripe and can be sown. Fresh seed germinates quickly.
On the other hand ripe fruit can remain on the plant for months. But what happens is that the seed starts to germinate inside the fruit, sometimes the rootlet breaking the skin of the fruit. These seeds can still be sown but often the emerging root is damaged and the resulting plant of poor health. So better sow when ripe. I always remove the flesh of the fruit and only sow the shiny smooth big seed.

Good luck!
