Re: Clivia seeds and germination

Jim, I have one seed head remaining on the bloom stem. It is very red in color. What should I do to get into the seed assuming it is inside this little hard red ball and when.
I'd leave it on the plant until it tells you it's ready :-).
The berry will eventually turn brown and shrink away from
the seed, or else the whole thing will fall off the plant.
In either case, you can slit open the berry and remove
the seed from the surrounding flesh. Imagine extracting
the seed from a small sour cherry, before/after it falls
from the tree. Please let us know what transpires.
