I bought a moonflower plant (not vine) from a plant sale. There is a seed pod on it. When is the best time to pick it to save the seeds? Then, what is the best way to store the seeds, then start them next year? Thank-you!

When the seed pod turns a tannish brown and just begins to crack open, cut the pod from the plant and empty the seeds into a paper envelope. You can save the seeds for planting next spring by placing the envelope in a glass jar with a lid and storing it in a cool, dark place. When the weather warms in the spring, plant the seeds outdoors, just barely covering them with soil. Enjoy your moonflower!
