Lophophora diffusa var. koehresii, fruit and seeds

One month ago I pollinated some flowers of my two mature L. koehresii.

The fresh fruit is white-pink, and presents the dried rest of the flower.

The first fruit I obtain from my plants has 5 seeds only, I hope they will produce more fruits but I have to pollinate the flowers because they are inside home and under day-light neon (865) and only Lophophora williamsii can pollinate theme-self.

My koehresii plants are vigorous and produced 12-13 flowers from january, I buy theme from OrtegaCactus, a south-spanish nursery.
