Question about Nerine sarniensis

Mikey(SoCal-Z10-22/23)November 24, 2003

I have several Nerine sarniensis of different colors contained in the same pot. The colors are white, pink, and red. Will the seeds likely result in bulbs of a hodgepodge of colors? Should I separate them if I want bulbs of a true color?

Mikey:

Will the seeds likely result in bulbs of a hodgepodge of colors? -- YES

Should I separate them if I want bulbs of a true color? -- YES, AND even with self-pollination, you may get some variety of color in the seed-grown offspring.
