4 o'clock seed question

proudgm_03(6 MO)August 24, 2008

Here is a picture of different size 4 o'clock seeds that I have collected from my plants. At first the ones I collected were the size on the left. Now I am seeing the big ones (about the size of a small pea) on the right. Which ones are the good ones? I don't remember planting seeds as big as the big ones.

either size will and does usually grow and does well but the differance is usually the amount of water that the plant recieved while in bloom

Sometimes seed do vary in size and/or color. More important is that they are hard, plump, and not crushable for round seed or bendable for long seed. Easily crushed seed is a sure sign that they are not viable.
