So before you let me have it, just know I'm sorry, and I already kicked myself repeatedly. This type of calla lily is my favorite plant in the whole world, and I've been upset that it didn't go to seed this past year... only to find that I ripped out a flower/seed pod with seeds in it.

I'm beyond devastated and sad.

I just want to ask, if the seeds will still mature in the pod even though it has been disconnected from the rhizome. Thank you

Gosh i was expecting replies along the lines of, "why didn't you check it before you did that?"

Oh well. The stalk is sitting in the corner of my yard. Probably not a good spot. I'll bring it in tomorrow. Hopefully the stalk has enough energy to finish the seeds. I guess I'll see...

Looks almost ripe, let it stay in a shady place, but still got some light. Some seeds might still be germinating if ripe enough. After all the stem and spadix dried completely, or the fruits change color, squeeze the seed out gently and sow. I am quite optimistic seeing the plump fruits Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers!
