Did you have problems with germinating
I find Alstroemeria bad germinating
or is there a trick

Germinated ok outside, but lost a few at the potting on stage.

I have bad experience
seeding total over 800 seeds in 10 varieties
I have just a few plants
maybe you need fresh seeds ?

from the 100 seeds from Alstroemeria umbellata
not a single germinated  :(

Showing some really nice variations in the genus, Michael and Roland.

Not knowing much about the hardy alstroemerias, I find the A. philippii var. philippii particularly fetching with its undulating feathered petal edges and bluish anthers.

My one attempt at growing Alstroemeria umbellata from seed was a failure, too. :(
