  I managed to send this to wrong thread earlier - so here it is again in a sensical context:
Pluck, clean & plant now - no need to wait. That orange color change is to announce a ripe berry to whatever forest creature(s) the plant apparently relies upon for seed dispersal.

> Back in November of 2014 my Haemanthus deformis was beginning to flower. I asked if this species is self fertile or requires a buddy. The consensus was a buddy was needed. Alas I had only one plant. Tim Eck came to the rescue and mailed me pollen. I did my best bee imitation and produced three green firm berries about the size of a peanut M&M. Now my green M&Ms are orange to a red orange and are getting soft. I have the following question: Would you wait for the berries to fall off and then clean them up and plant them or should I pluck the berries now, clean them and plant them?
