I have a few bulbs with really nice seed pods. Should the pods remain attached to the bulb until the pods are no longer green and beginning to open?

Also, what is the recommended drying procedure after the seeds are removed from the pod?

Thanks,

Kathy

Let the seeds ripen and dry on the plant. They will be ready for planting at that time.

Daisy, thanks for the info... I have about 15 seeds just put out the little root part and waiting for growth to begin planting the bulblets.

Just went a little nuts the other day, I have two end of season bulbs blooming their last stalk for the season and wondered what would happen if I pollinated using daylily pollen... I'll let everyone know it anything happens but I figured what the heck, there is a little Frankenstein i guess in all of us!
