Haemanthus deformis

  My experience is self-fertility is hit-or-miss with H. deformis. I have several bulbs and one of them has set copious seed when it bloomed alone whereas the other, even with the same diligent pollination, produced a single seed (which I assume was apomictic). So: It can't hurt to try or: I could send you some pollen from mine (though at the moment all the pollen has been washed off the mature anthers by a day of heavy rains)...
