Most definitely some rain lilies are apomictic.  As I have found since 
hybridising them.  Do you know if that book mentioned which ones were 
apomictic, Jim?  So far I have found no list of which are or aren't.  I 
have a short list myself, from experience and bits read in different 
articles, but would love to know more about which are and which aren't.
