Boophone seed

  Boophone are slightly self-compatible in my experience. This year, for instance, I've gotten about ~10 seeds from the only Boophone disticha that bloomed for me. This bloom included one individual flower stem that branched into 3 stems where the flower would normally be with each of those stems having a flower at the end (and one of them set a single seed).
