How do I capture the seeds before they explode? I can see some near the base of the bracts.

The plants were gifted to me today while I wasn't home by a nearby neighbor who knew I had my eye on them. Small miracle!

Isn't Crossandra the one that pops when the seed pods get wet? If so, it should be easy. Put the dry seed heads in a ziplock bag and add water. Smiling
