    Unhappy

    Can anyone tell me if G. hispidula self pollenate, and if so, how long does it take for the seeds to reach maturity? Also, aprox. how many seeds can I expect per pod?
    Thanks for any info,
    Nile

    Most, but not all flowers self. I haven't timed maturation, but would guess it takes a couple of weeks. I suppose each pod has a couple hundred seeds at most, but again, haven't counted.

    The seed pods will turn from green to a light brown color and will eventually dry and crack open. How long that takes seems to depend on the temperature. If the seed falls into a suitable media, you will eventually find volunteer plants in that pot. After I purposefully seed a new pot, it seems to take a couple of months before I notice little seedlings.
