    Smile Phal Lavender finally bursts

    After 5 months and 20 days my Phal Lavender finally burst. The day before yesterday the pod was still green. Yesterday, it turned light yellow at the top of the pod. This morning it quickly turned all yellow. I cover it by a coffe filter:

    See, I should have done that! Arggg.

    Congratulations. I too recently have gained the satisfaction of getting viable seeds after 7 long months of waiting.

    Hi Tindomul,
    Did you sow your seeds yet? How your seeds are doing? I sowed my seeds 3 days ago. So far no contamination yet. Just wait and see.

    I got really lazy, and was working on my other hobby (frogs last week) so no, I havent gotten around to it yet. Plus Im really confused as to what to do (mostly cuase I havent lifted a finer to do anything yet).
    Ahhhh... there is no task that takes longer than the one you never start.
