I saw Chlorophytum Plant flowering on 8th June 2010. ( May be C. Tuberosum or C. borivlianum. Though advised by Dr. Neil, i have not dug up yet.).

Today on 12th June 2010, i saw the fruits. It took only 4 days to form the fruits. Lifecycle is so short!

Attached the pics of fruits and a video clip of a bee on the flowers of Chlorophytum. it seems either the bee is very hungry or the pollens are its favourite food.

Dear Shubhada Ji,
My instinct say this is Chlorophytum borivilianum (Safed Musli). I know this plant to some extent as in our college a lot of tissue culture research is carried out on this plant .
