Are Eucrosia self fertile? I have one bulb just finishing but two others that should open simultaneously and I was hoping 2 B able to get some seed set from them to increase my collection. I've pollinated the single stem with it's own pollen. Time will tell
  Since all my plants were from the same supplier, I am not sure if they are offsets, seedlings or from cuttage of the same bulb. Are seedlings from the same parent considered different enough for plants that require seperate clones to produce seeds?? 
  Oh, and one other question, why are they called biflora when 5 flowers are on the stem??
