It's August so the Clivia seed is red, or yellow if you have yellow flowering plants, and is ripe and ready to be planted. Scrape off the fleshy outer covering, which is apparently very good for your nails and cuticles. Place the seed on top of the soil in a seed tray and cover with leaf mold or chunky compost. Water and wait. don't be surprised when the root comes out first and goes up in the air before bending down into the soil. This root seems to drag the seed down and the leaves will soon unfold.
