I have been searching everywhere trying to figure out what this plant is and can't seem to find it. Does anybody know what this might be.

I know I've seen that before but at the moment my brain is stuck on Royal Poinciana and I don't think that's the correct answer.

@metrosideros, can you take a look please.

I may be totally off here, but this reminds me of something we used to eat as kids. Isn't there an edible layer in that? I think we used to call it Manna.

I answered this earlier but maybe I forgot to push 'send'.

First, we need to know where this seedpod was from (city, state, country)? Are there any trees/plants nearby that could have produced this pod?

What you have is a seedpot for ... ?

To figure this out, tell us where the seedpod is from (city, state, country?). What are the growing conditions of the area where the seedpod was found? Were there any trees near by that could have been the parent of this seedpod.

Oops! Found it!

that is a Cassia seed pod I believes, most probably Cassia x nealiae (judging from pod color(but of course just a guess), other might be Cassia fistula, or C javanica or similar...

edit: sorry just read Cassia x nealiae is sterile, than the one I found in Hawaii might not belong to that particular tree, may be C fistula.

Cassia leptophylla? Seems to be a fairly common tree in Southern California (though, native to Brazil).

Cassia looks right.
