Well, after Meg led me to knowing one of my favorite flowers
in my yard, I just had to know how to get more! It seems, it is not that simple, but it can be done. Here in some info I found.
>Is it possible to propagate Alstroemeria from the bottom of stems from cut
Sorry, no; you can propagate them only from seed
or from portions of the
root with growing
points. The flower
stems are annual and will not produce
roots. The cutflower strains of Alstroemeria may be available as potted plants
at some garden centers.
When I first attempted propagating alstroemeria some years ago
I tried using every kind of tissue offered; rhizome pieces, the tips
and those containing axillary buds, were the only ones that continued growing
and reproduced the entire plant

Average Water Needs; Water regularly; do not overwater. Handling plant
