The one constant in life is change
|Yes, and you may or may not have viable seeds inside it, but wait until it's completely brown and dry to open it and see. If you grew this lily indoors, it may not have been pollinated so the seeds may not develop. If there are seeds, you can plant them now and raise new plants for your garden next year.

|The seed pod is not well developed, both generally speaking and chronologically speaking. Even though it is deformed, some seed may still be developing, but I wouldn't count on it. Moreover, the pod isn't even close to being mature, when the hopeful seeds would be ready. So there is no sense in drying it. Normal lily pods should look something like this:
And the seed pod dries out naturally when the seeds are ready. Initiating a drying process before the seeds are ready will kill the developing seeds. If there were any good seed, th seed would survive the winter, even in northern Manitoba.
