Seed pods?

LocoGuyJune 17, 2012

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.

LocoGuy,

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..!

Good Luck!!!

Something special that i saw today!!!

Have a great night everyone!!!

I think my seedpod is starting to open up. Going to put something around it to make sure they dont fly away.
