My plant has been blooming over the last 2 weeks, and nothing else is blooming that it might have crossed with (including Aloes and Gasterias), yet now there are seedpods. Is this plant self-fertile?

Haworthia koelmaniorum:

Thanks for any help!

Some, possibly all or most, aloaceae become self fertile if it's over a certain temperature when they flower. Are the seed pods from flowers that were open on a particularly warm day?

Thanks, Ed...I will. It's such a lovely plant, it may have some really lovely babies!

Richard - by the standards of where I live, no - not a particularly warm day. It was probably in the 75°F to 80°F range. Maybe it liked it at that temp. Thanks for the suggestion, and I hope I get seeds! :D

Katie
