Step 7. Transfer to individual pots when the leaves are 6 inches or more in length.

Special Notes:

Pollinating the Amaryllis Flower

When pollinating flowers, especially bulbs, keep in mind that if you use the pollen and stigma from the same flower, you may eventually produce weaker bulbs.  It is good to experiment with different amaryllis colors and types.  

One day, you may introduce a spectacular new variety.  Just make sure to keep good notes, so that you can reproduce the results.

Step 1:  Understand the flower anatomy.  There is one stigma.  It is the female receptor.  There are numerous stamen which contain soft, yellow pollen on the tips of the stamen.

Step 2:  Remove a stamen with the pollen.  Place the pollen on the end of the stigma, making sure some of the pollen sticks.  You can use an artist brush or your fingertips, if you prefer.

Step 3:  The ovum will swell and eventually turn tan or light brown in color.  This is the seed pod.  It will begin to crack open, exposing the black, tissue thin seeds.

Step 4:  When the seed pod has opened all the way, cut the seed pods off at their stem.

Step 5:  Empty the seed pods and throw the pods away.  Not all pods will be ready at the same time.
