    so will there be extra Capensis seeds [/QUOTE]
    I am sure I will have plenty of seeds left for others. If you do not mind waiting I will ship some out to you. Just message me. It has been a little over a month so any day they should ripen. Do not need to worry about SASE it is only 37 cents to mail out or 4 pop bottles. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Er, Travis, do you mean to ask "please pin this to the top of the forum until my darn seeds ripen?" or something like that? [/QUOTE]
    Yes that would be lovely. It will only be temporarily, Thanks.

    Question

    Quote (Travis @ Sep. 30 2003,09:49)
    That is to stick this topic on top (with the moon thingy).[/QUOTE]
    You kids and your sticky notes! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Don'tcha recognize an old fashion push pin pinning a note? Back in aught whatever, when I was a kid, they had cork bulletin boards and they used push pins for tacking up notes & messages. And I had to walk to school barefoot in winter in three feet of snow. It was up hill both to and from school.

    Hey I did walk two miles to school. In the snow in winter. And the beginning and the end were hills.......

    What really sucked was that fifty feet away from my front door was a bus stop. The city deemed that you had to live on the other side of the bus stop to take the bus so I was out of luck. I'm still angry about it! Oh, well. It probably got me hooked on staying in shape. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Well back in the weeee 1900's when I was a young lad. I had to walk to school when we had about 3 feet or so of snow. Dat was back in the DA U.P.. The only thing living in California you have baby skin to the snow and it is really cold *brrr*. O' the trauma...but do recall wearing shoes.

    I believe I have enough people to distribute the seeds. As the days/weeks go on I will let you know if I have any extras to give away. Just do not want to say yes to everybody then not have any seeds in the end.

    Enjoy,
    Travis

    how long does it take for capensis seeds to germinate?[/QUOTE]
    To germinate, I have gotten seed to germinate in as little as 10 days, and as long as 4 weeks. I have heard it can sometimes take longer. It depends on how fresh the seeds are I believe. If you mean to ripen, that I am not sure of as my capensis is just now sending up its first flower stalk.

    I still do not have seeds [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] . The stem is turning brown now. Should I still wait or squeeze the flowers? I also have a napkin under the flowers with no sign of seeds.

    I should have waited to post this topic. So sorry for the wait.

    Collecting seeds is easy...once the seed pods turn brown, keep a close eye on them...they will eventually start to split open. At this point, tap them gently onto a plain white piece of paper, and the seeds will just fall out.
    Good luck![/QUOTE]
    i think you should wait.. i dont know nothing about sowing seeds., but i think Schloaty already answered that [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Travis,
    I would tap it gently over a peice of white paper every day until you start to see tiny black specs fall out onto the paper.

    Just a note of caution...while capensis readily self seed, they don't always, even with a little help they sometimes fail...also, some times one flower will work, and the next not work....
    I'd be willing to bet that at least a couple of the ripening buds will have seeds. They'll start to fall out to the tapping method once the seed pod is all brown, or very shortly there after.
