    Not yet. First flower closed last week. Second flower just closed yesterday. Third flower should open this week and fourth bud just emerged. I have no idea how long it takes from flower closing for good and ripe seeds.

    Observations: Seems that a new bud appears every week. I wonder how many the plant has the capacity to put out. I did notice that they flower for like 3 days and then close up for good. The stalk itself also goes from vertical to horizontal the last day. Everything has dew on it!

    Sorry, no pictures. A co-worker fro my weekend job as supposed to have brought in a camera on Sunday but must've forgotten. I have a camera with no battery life and when I recharged it, it acted as if the batteries were still dead. My old camera buddy is finally dropping off a USB that has pictures taken last September and I requested the camera. We'll see what happens!

    At a wild guess from my one pot of these an average of 4 pods per plant - not all the flowers produced pods - and maybe a dozen seeds per pod. I did not hand pollinate. Hand pollination may increase the yield. I did not pay attention to seed maturation time either. Another wild guess, 3-4 weeks.

    Larger pots are supposed to yield larger, longer lasting plants. This might increase the seed yield too.

    Josh: germination should take about 2 weeks. I do not stratify or otherwise treat the seeds.

    Okay I mixed you guys up
    Sorry I traded gemmae/sent gemmae to like 8 or 10 people.
    I hope there is germination they are in a very large pot(8 inches tall)
    They are in my tank with cfls in my grow closet that is always warm and the pot is under the cfls so it is getting 80F
