    Update:

    She's gonna blooow!
    This is one VERY plump seed pod. Should be ready in a month or two.

    Any volunteers who want to try flasking these seeds?

    That would be awesome.
    But given that I have no experience with setting flasks whatsoever, I would be extremely lucky if I can even get a dozen plants out of the thousands of seeds that I could extract.

    That is amazing to see. Good luck to whomever tries to get these seeds to grow. I'd never be brave enough to try that. Not to mention that I probably wouldn't live long enough to ever see a flower. Having never seen a seed pod though, I really enjoyed seeing this one.

    I am seeing cracks along the ridges of the seed pod. So this pod is about to pop really soon.

    I have been really busy the past few weeks and I doubt I will have the time to flask this myself.
    I might just try to spread the seed powder on a bed of mature spaghnum moss and see what happens.
