Random plant event: Gasteria NOID pod

I can't think of anything else in the Aloe / Gasteria / Haworthia family that was flowering at the same time, and I didn't think Gasteria flowers were self-fertile, but nevertheless, we had a pod form. It failed to develop, though, and dropped off shortly after this picture was taken. So maybe it was never all there to begin with.

In any case, it's the first time I've seen even the beginning of this process, so that was kind of cool.

The plant in question.

The pod.
