Hi Arthur,

Do you know if it is self-fertile?? I have a large B. disticha
inflorescence in my front year and tried to pollinate it several times
without much luck as far as I can see now and it is ready to dehisce. I
have had success with Brunsvigia josephinae. Last year I managed to
harvest about 25 seed.  So far the bulb is dormant this year at a time
when last year it was in full flower. I was hoping this year to offer
seed to the list but I guess not. Germination of the seed from last year
was near 100%. Perhaps I should have a "talk" with the bulb which is
almost as big as a volleyball.
