    Please respond ASAP Re: Nep seed harvesting

    If the seed pods on a nep have split at the bottom of the pod but more are still closed, do I just cut the split ones that are open and just follow cuts as the others open?
    Or do I just cut the whole stalk?
    I also need to know the way's of drying them, desiccant, air dry?
    thanks and I need immediate advice.
    Peace,
    Zero

    I think the best thing to do, is to harvest the ready ones, or shake the stalk and see if it releases any. I woouldn't vut it, because there might be adverse effects to the unopened ones.

    just make your nep a bit sexy and put some stockings over the flowerspike and wait until all pods opened.

    I agree with a few others here, in that you shouldn't remove the pod just yet; and I also wouldn't dry the seeds outright but refrigerate them (at about 3˚C) upon collection until you're ready to plant them. A small dessicant pouch, along with the seeds in a zip-lock bag is not a bad idea . . .

    As strange as may seem, a bit of uncooked rice in a bag serves as a decent dessicant and is commonly used in humid environments to keep sugar from caking . . .
