This evening I saw on my first seed pod a really tiny opening... I'm anxious to check it tomorrow in the morning, I think it's time to collect seed, and I hope I will actually find seeds LOL!
It's Lighting Strike x Awakening spirit. The pod is really small, and the slice on the right went dry soon, so I guess it's empty. The pod set on june 22, it took forever to ripen. I'm crossing fingers!

Only that brown and really dry part opened, and as I was suspecting there are not seeds in it. The "fattest" part is still close, so in doubt I placed an organza bag on it, so if it should fully open I won't lose seeds. I'm pretty scared about touching it lol.

The pod was small and one of the three sections dried out very soon, so I knew it was empty. But today I found another section was empty and the third with his one seed! The other pod I set on Spanish glow is four times bigger than this so I'm hoping to find some more seed!

I've had a couple pods this year only have a few seeds in them. It's very dissapointing when you see that. Especially when it's a cross your looking forward to lol. Good luck with the seed cybersix!!

Sabrina,
Thanks for the pod picture. I just mentioned in another forum, that I'd like to see pictures of pods. Good and bad examples. It's good to see from your picture that even just one of the sections can produce a seed for you. I would have guessed that it needed to be tossed out, but you have shown that is not the case. Thumbs up
