I was down at the basement doing some watering and cleaning and thought of sharing what is happening down there.
I received a few seed packets of Charlie Kroell lilies last fall. I tried sowing a packet and the below pic is the result. I don't remember how many seeds were in the packet, but there were seven that came up.
These are the Griesbach Asiatic lily seeds I received from the good doctor. I sowed the 1b plum x 1b plum seeds. I hope to sow the others soon.

My Hippeastrum cross, Bogota x Rapido.
And another cross of mine made last year, Hippeastrum San Remo x Rapido.
Hippeastrum Wedding Dance x Graffiti, cross made by a friend from Hawaii.
The big fat pod is of Hippeastrum Exotic Star x Bogota.
The pods at 12 and 6 o' clock are of Exotic Star x Papilio.
Hopefully these will all take, H. Chico x H. papilio.
H. striatum x H. papilio, ripening.
Last fall, I collected lots of open pollinated trumpet African Queen lily seeds. If anybody is interested to experiment and grow lilies from seeds, email me and I will send you a packet. These seeds are mixed of four strains of AQ growing in my garden.
Floris Hekker has medium size flowers. The green strappy leaves grew at the same time with the scapes. Although short in stature, it compensated its shortcoming with its vibrant red flowers.
In the second photo, FH was photographed with Chico and supposed to be Red Lion.
