Billbergia brasiliensis seed pods

karyn1(7a)November 20, 2012

Hi. I have a Billbergia brasiliensis that has several seed pods. They've been developing for about 4 months but aren't yet ripe. I've opened a couple pods over the past few weeks and the seeds are a light orange color and sticky. When allowed to dry they've just shriveled up. How can you tell when a pod is ripe? TIA
