    Holy crap. That's scary looking. Would you be giving away any seeds?

    carnivorkid:

    you dont need to wait until the end of the season to harvest seed pods. Look at the last picture you posted. When the pod turns that color, and most importantly, dehisces (splits open), its time to harvest. If you wait, you will lose seeds to wind, animals, etc. I don't have experience with this species, but it is possible that viability of seeds may decrease with time as well.

    no i pull them in before the pod splits. When the green pods split i cut them off. And then a few days after that they start to dry and the hooks spread apart. The plant was hit by 4 frosts in a row. So the plant has no leaves currently but still alive and green as far as the stems. I will post a picture of them currently.[/B]

    I believe a moderator along the way asked me about posting a how to grow the devils claw plant giving in depth growing info. I have pictures from this when it was a seedling to now as a huge plant and now getting very near to the end of the season.

    Ok first i have some pictures a week or so before frost hit taken on October 5th also as you can see due to lowering of temps the plant was stunted and started growing funny.Also something decides to eat the leaves. I thought that was interesting The rest taken today







    After the frost
    also due to the plants leaves containing like a dew kinda like a sundew the water freezes and damages the leaves easily. One frost knocked all the leaves dead.



    The stem showing how large they really get


    a pod spliting







    Enjoy
