Help identifying this (I think) Lilies? And Amaryllis seed pod?

japanmaniazAugust 3, 2013

I have this in my garden for a long time now. It looked like a lily, comes from a bulb (I just cut some excess since the pot was crowded with three already), but I don't know what it really is.

I live in Indonesia. There's not much change in the weather pattern and the temperature is about 28-32. The flower bloomed every 2-5 months.

On another note, I managed to get my Amaryllis to seed, but I'm not sure how to take care of it? When it opened, inside was some thin, black, paper-like sheets. Do I just bury it in some soil and hope for the best??

Very pretty! That could be some sort of crinum. Is the foliage a rosette?

The hippeastrum/amaryllis forum has an excellent FAQ that gives good directions on the "float" method for hippeastrum seeds. And given your climate, just direct planting would probably be fine. Cover very lightly and keep moist - they take around a month to sprout.

I agree that it looks like a crinum. A picture of the entire plant and/or the foliage would be helpful. It is stunning. I would love to get my hands on a reblooming, pure white crinum. You have a treasure.

mmm, I wondered if it was an amaryllis belladonna. What is the bulbs like?
