beenthere said:I've been harvesting pods any time after 35 days. From what I've read, from the links @Sooby shared from the AHS, the embryo is mature by them. I've gotten well over 80% germination the last year doing this and it eliminates losing seed to pod degradation..... this is a seedling from one of those early harvest pods, Paradise Princess X Helicopter. Seeding is 9 months old, bloom is under three inches. Wanted to see what Helicopter could do with the darklings and I'm excited for the crosses to come.
