This is useful as well as cool to know; thank you for posting the info.

Yes it can be a pain but once the first 5-10 bulbils come out the rest are easy. It only takes a minute or two per umbel. Hope you decided to give it a try. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I know several people working on getting true seed too.
