    Unhappy Knocked off the pod :(

    I cannot BELIEVE I've done this....but today I bumped into my phal and broke the pod off the stem.

    This pod has grown rather large and is only 2 months old. Is is too soon/immature to send off to be sown?

    If it is only two month old, I don't think it will be viable. Anyone else?

    Sorry, Doodle. What a bummer.

    Cheers,

    I agree. Eight weeks is a bit young. Sorry!

    Oh man -- that is such a bummer. I was hoping you could still manage to get some viable seeds, but it sounds like the expert opinion is that that is unlikely.

    Thank you everyone. There is one redeeming factor; I have 3 more phals and 2 dend pods growing very nicely. I think I will take Kfirs advice and mark them to protect them from MYSELF!!!!!

    Now if I could just get myself set up to sow the seeds myself I'd be ecstatic!!!!!
