Thanks Nhu,
These 2 bulbs came from the same source. I  expect this is their first bloom, so wouldn't qualify as fully mature. All I can do is try to pollinate them both. I've corresponded with another member who wants to try a pollen swap.

Hi Randy,

Unless those two bulbs are from two different clones, they will not self
readily. With that said, when the bulbs are mature enough and in the right
conditions, you can force them to self and they may make one or two seeds.
However, it doesn't appear that the seeds are viable. I have tried this
several times but the seeds just rot off before germination.

I would like very much to obtain fertile seeds from them. I can't find any
written information online or in the WIKI about pollinating, growing seeds,
and then planting/germinating. I believe I have read that they will not
self-pollinate. Is that correct
