    That's a cool species I've never seen till now. Good luck with the flower and seedlings.

    These have rather lovely flowers. I hope you get some shots of the flowers. Be sure to save some seed as these are annuals or biennials.

    I think the flower will open tomorrow and there is another bud emerging. You bet I'll save seeds! Where's my Sharpie?!

    A little update: 3 flowers have come and gone. A 4th is currently blooming and a 5th is emerging (scape). The first pod has changed shape. Instead of being elliptical, it is now like a miniature pumpkin. I hope that means that the pod truly has developing seeds. Instinct tells me that since the pod hasn't turned black yet, it is still not ripe. What can you all tell me about pod and seed development?

    Yep, the pods look kind of like pumpkins, 4 lobes. They turn a paper-like light tan before splitting open - almost like onion skin. They kind of split open like those paper nitpicker fortune teller things you used to make as a kid (where you put your fingers in). Pods get around 1/8 of an inch. Maybe about 12 seeds average per flower pod. The seeds turn black as they ripen and the pods split open slowly at first.

    Great looking plant Jim. What mix do you have it growing in? The reason I ask being that I've had several seedlings die on me in the past few months and I think it might be my media that's doing them in. I successfully grew this species several years back and I can't remember my perlite to peat ratio.

    Nice plant Jim. I got some seeds from the ICPS recently, although I'm worried that my grow-room is too cold; is around 60-70 degrees enough? Yours seems to be next to a window, so it obviously isn't that warm.
