    Bozz I won't count the chickens before they hatch (Actually I am already counting them hehe). Sure if everything works out well, we can have seedlings for everyone on the forum.

    The pods are developing well and I will now transfer them back to the green house. he shapes of both the pods are quite different. The one on C. Eros is triangular and the one on Love Knot has many more sides (5+) what is the reason for this?

    Looking great!

    I don't know the reason for the 5+ sides either, but I have seen this type pod before too. I think it looks really interesting.

    Cheers,

    Thanks ! I will keep everyone updated. I hope the pods ripen very fast and I can send the seeds to a seed sowing service before I go back to India in December.
