Acis valentina

I used to occasionally miss getting the seeds from some of my plants that I really wanted. But I finally went and ordered a bunch of small organza drawstring pouch bags (for example: <…>) which I put on seed pods that I want the seed from long before they ripen. They work very well for almost any kind of seed pod. They will even hold the seeds for a long time after they ripen, which means I don't worry about being out of town even for long trips.

The fall-blooming members of this genus ripen their seeds very quickly (fall Prospero, aka Scilla, do also), and I am going to be out of town Sept. 20-Oct. 5. I'll keep a sharp watch. However, when I move them there may be offsets too.
