When to collect VFT seeds?
I've been looking around online for information on when to collect VFT seeds but all I get are ads to purchase some.
My VFT has been growing this very long flower stalk with quite a few buds at the top. It tried to grow a flower stalk last year but I pinched it off because I wanted it to be a bit older before I let it bloom. Now that a year has passed and summer is on its way, its trying to bloom again.
My question is, I was wondering how I can tell when it is ready to collect the seeds? Does it dry and I remove the pod? Or do I need to put a plastic bag over it because of the pod popping open to spread seeds everywhere?
I'm completely new to this territory. I've had this VFT for three years now. It was purchased from Wal-Mart or K-Mart or some store where it was already a grown VFT with a plastic cup as its 'dome'.
