Hi there, does anyone know why my L. purpurata capsule turned black after 2 and 1/2 months and started opening? I have never bred them before and would like to know if you think the seeds might be viable (without having to look under a microscope). I thought the green pod maturation period was a lot longer (175 days). Also the plant looks VERY HEALTHY and it was crossed with itself. I would appreciate any information. Thanks a sextillion!
