Somewhere in the Lycoris literature, someone mentioned that cutting the L. squam. bloom stalks and hanging them up (rarely) induced seed formation. How long after the flower petals fade away is this done? Yes, I do understand that L. squam. is a sterile triploid (I've had college level Genetics), BUT I'm curious to see what happens--if anything. And if seed is by some miracle produced, what then? Grow them in agar via sterile tissue culture?

Indiana Zone 5B and the clay soil is rapidly becoming hard as bricks around here.
