Dear all;
	I had an abundance of bloom on Crinum x powellii this spring 
and summer. I dabbed pollen indiscriminately on many flowers from C. 
bulbispermum (mostly) and other powellii-types. Of the potentially 
hundreds of such dabbings I got 5 small seeds. Of these two have 
germinated to the 2 leaf stage. One other has put out a root, but is 
sitting there.
	Has anyone else ever had an x powellii set fertile seed?
	I plan on wintering them indoors, frost free.

	Very curious.		Jim W.
