How to Plant ALSTROEMERIA Seeds

Sow seed in 3 inch pots, placing 3 seeds ¼ inch deep. Put inside zip-lock bags, keep at 70° F. for 3 weeks. Then move bags into refrigerator for 3 weeks. Next, return to 70° F., germination begins in about 2 weeks. Transplant entire clump 12-18 inches apart.
Comments: Full sun, part shade in hot climates. During growth and bloom provide regular water. Needs cool, moist, deep, well-drained soil. In zone 6 and colder parts of zone 7, protect crowns in winter using a deep mulch. Alstroemerias can be grown in cold-winter climates when tuberous roots are dug in fall, stored in moist (not wet) peat moss or vermiculite and kept at (ideally) 40° F. Flowers attract hummingbirds.
