Have you tried just leaving the pods on the plants longer? You could cover them with bags and tie on the plant to keep them from escaping, and check often. Cut off pantyhose work great for this and you can see through them.

According to this, harvest seeds, soak, plant immediately.

Thank you for the info , I have 3 specie,s of the Chiranthodendron pentadactylon.

This yellow one (i have two off theme, grown out about 300 seeds),is a crossing and the result i have made with one off the Chiranthodendron pentadactylon and a Fremontodendron.

Even have tried last year with some ducktape to keep a seedpot as long as possible on the tree , no succes however.
But i will try the pantyhose.

And plant them right after harvesting. Lots of things only sprout when seeds are really fresh, right off the plant. The longer the seeds are stored the harder it is to get them to germinate.
