Del and Vlad,
Thanks for the suggestions.  I will take them to heart.  The bulbs in
question were new purchases that had been cold treated and so bloomed
earlier than normally.  I guess I am questioning the difference between
unpollinated flowers and ones that are pollinated and the ovaries swell
to several times the size they were on the flower and then shrivel.  I have
seen this happen more frequently on crinums where they can get to full size
and then be completely empty.  I will try pollinating three days in a row
and see if that produces better results.
And Vlad, I live within a kilometer of the 40th parallel.  Today was 9hr
52min long.
