Thank Jim for your considerations, which come from your direct observation, but I have to share mine too. One Brunsvigia littoralis flowers well from three years, but it has never set any seed so far, selfed or crossed with Amaryllis pollen. This summer another littoralis has flowered for the first time and I have crossed both reciprocally, but none of them has set seeds. On the other hand, the B. josephinae, at its first flowering (38 florets) has set an average of 8-10 seeds per pod, on those I have hand pollinated with B. bosmaniae and Amaryllis pollen, and while I haven't put any mark on them, I am pretty sure that three of them are those I pollinated.
