Hello everyone, I was so happy about my seed pods but this morning I found one is falling, somehow it got broken. I'm attaching a picture. Can I snip it off and put it in some water? Pollination was almost one month ago so it was on it's way to ripen!

Sabrina - I would definitely try adding it to water. I had to do that with about 30+ scapes loaded with pods because I had a rat eating the pods in my garden. Almost ALL of my pods ripened and seem to have produced viable seeds after sitting in a vase of water to ripen. The scapes do get rather nasty looking and smelling, even with frequent water change, but well worth it to be able to collect all those precious seeds.

I thought that if it was still hanging like that it would go ahead and develop, is that not right?

It depends on how far along the seed pod is. Being a month old, it might. But that could be chancy, so I'd rather err on the safe side and just add it to water and let it finish ripening.

Thanks everyone, it's too late to save that seed pod. My BIL's dog made it fall and thought it was a nice toy. I have the backup pod Big Grin on the same daylily, it was pollinated later but it's growing. So I have to wait a bit longer, and I'll watch it carefully. Many thanks for your replies, I will keep in mind your advices!
