Farmer Dave,
There is over 10 pods that are maturing on the plant.

glider14,
I do not know yet. None are ready to collect seed from.

Capslock,
Sorry, all my pics will have a copyright symbol on them. Ever since someone was using my pictures without permission to sell plants on ebay. Since I also place plants on ebay from time to time I did not want some else using them as well.

adnedarn,
Here is a picture from this summer.

Here is a picture of the plant now.
The leaves are much shorter, and it looks like the plant may branch, several times maybe. Hopefully the short leaves does not mean it's about to kick the bucket. I've read many people have the plant die on them after 2 years. This plant is almost 2 and a half years old now.
I also noticed looking at the plant before snapping the pics is that another flower stalk is coming up.

That is very very very cool! I've tried twice to grow them from seed (2 seeds each try) and didn't have luck. Wonder if it'd be better now that I have a g/h and not growing inside with stagnate temps... Also- that pot is the same pot I used to grow my D. ordensis in! haha
Thanks for the pictures, and congrats on the "another one" flower!!! Should I start sending my trade offers now? Or wait?
