Thank You! Xeramtheum for sharing this video. I am constantly amazed by how different plants are from each other. Whether they are spiny, eating insects, scented, popping out seeds or just lovely to admire their beauty of uniqueness, all plants are awesome. Smiling

(I keep my homemade net baggies on hand to gather the seeds from my euphorbias and jatrophas.) Smiling

That was really cool!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

You're welcome Reine .. I use those organza bags you can get at the dollar tree stores. They are really a must for plants with exploding seed pods.

They really work well for hybridizing too .. I use them to sequester flowers that I'm going to hand pollinate and they come in a larger size as well.

That video should have had the 1812 Overture as background music!

This is a great online site for organza bags in many sizes and colors. Patti1957 turned me on to it.

Here are some of their biggest sizes:
6"x9"(CD bag)
8"x12"(wide wine bag)
6.5"x15"(tall wine bag)
22" x 25.5"(giant bag)

Prices are good:

3"x 4" Flat Organza Bags . . 30 bags / $2.10 (7 cents each)
4"x 6" Flat Organza Bags . . 30 bags / $4.20 (14 cents each)
6-1/2"x 15" Tall Wine Bags 10 bags / $3.30 . (33 cents each)

As an example, here are the 25 colors available for the 6.5" x 15" tall wine bag:

White (01),
Ivory (02),
Gold (03),
Silver (04),
Lavender (05),
Black (06),
Red (07),
Pink (08),
