    I just went through this a couple weeks ago. In a nutshell, you want to hold the pot upside down, over a larger container to catch the gemmae. With a toothpick, you coax the gemmae out of the crown.

    The same approach would apply to the Captain!

    You don't really think you'll get too many gemmae out of him doing that do you??

    Gemmae? He may not get gemmae, but the exercise might be fun - at least for Matt.

    haha
    I dun think alan could ever get gemmae.. and I'm still mad at him for killing my madagascarensis... that thing was doing well, 4 inches tall and stuff until he forgot to water it. (he was supposed to take care of it)... UPDATE: I got the gemmae off the top, and planted it on... lfs over peat and perlite...
