Snail vine seed pods

marybrightwellsNovember 10, 2012

At what point should seed pods of the snail vine be harvested, and how should they be kept and planted? Thanks!

Snail Vine is in the bean family and will develop bean like pods. Once they are dry, they are ready to be harvested.
They should be kept in an envelope in a cool, dry, and dark spot.
The link below has info from gardeners on how they start the seed and also there is a pic of a pod and seeds in the thread.

Thanks for the information on the seed pods. My (prolific) vine has hundreds of seed pods...but they aren't dry yet, so I will wait. We may have our first frost tonight, but the vine is so thick, some will surely survive. (also the frosts here are mild...the Houston area).
This vine has covered (yay!) a wooden play set I inherited with this home. It has traveled up a crepe Myrtle tree and mixed with a white Mandevila..quite pretty. Although I am fascinated with it and the purple blooms are many and beautiful, I would consider this vine invasive in this zone 8.
If anyone would like photos or seed pods, drop me a note:
Thanks again Remy, for the link. Mary
