Subject: [pbs] Boophone disticha X Amarygia seed?

Several of the fruits on one of my Boophone disticha, on which I used 2-yr 
old frozen/saved pollen from a 2008 white X Amarygia bloom, have begun to 
split, revealing white/opalescent seeds. In the past, I've only seen 
Boophone disticha seeds that are green or greenish-yellow. I am speculating 
that this may be an indication of a potentially successful cross. Of course, 
growing these on to bloom will provide better indication of such. While this 
inflorescence/infructescence is the same age as those of its neighboring 2 
bulbs, its fruit seems to have developed more quickly than the others, on 
which I used Boophone disticha pollen. I don't think these are quite 'ready' 
yet as the fruit skin has not turned papery yet, as is usually the case with
