    The cutting didn't make it... It completely wilted overnight.

    I always harvest when the skin of the fruit begins to brown and split. I then let it completely dehisce indoors on a flat surface at room temperature. The skin will split in several pieces and become dry and brittle while the claw inside opens up.

    From the data I collected last year, I found that it took around 50 days for a fruit to completely ripen and begin to dehisce. This data was from plants that were grown in the ground and not in containers/pots.

    Yes, the smell is pretty bad, especially this time of the year. The mucilage is worse though. It's like industrial glue... soap and water doesn't help at all.

    It could be soon that seed pod ripening but I'm not sure. Should I move Seedling #2 from the pure garden soil into the Potting Soil and Perlite mixure in the garden here because it looks like the pure garden soil has compacted around it? Just curious and here is a updated picture of Seedling #2.
