I think my DS is growing seedpods for the first time. How long does it take for the pod to be fully grown?
LocoGuy, I don't know how long it takes, but when you see it with brown color, you need to cover it with something (stocking). to keep it in place. Without cover, when it opens, seeds fly everywhere. Fresh seeds germinate with high rate. Good luck.
This is one of my seed pods.. Here one day... then POOF!
The next night... Im glad i checked on it the next morning... I did manage to collect most of the seeds. I agree with Marie. Take a knee hi and place it over the pod when you think it is getting close..!
Something special that i saw today!!!
Have a great night everyone!!!
Laura, what an AWESOME picture!!! That's just beautiful!
LocoGuy, congrats on the seedpod - how big / old is the plant?! What color are the blooms?
The plant is between 15 and 20 yrs old. Not that big. It has been in a little small pot since i was a kid. Ill post a pic when i get a chance
Laura the pic with the dragonfly is fantastic! It looks like it came out of National Geographic.
Here is a pic of the plant. It has looked better before. Its been raining a lot.
it grows so fast
Congrats on your seed pod, LocoGuy . You'll have little ones in no time. Peg
