I have several H. harrisiana spikes that produced seedpods this year and I
wanted to know when are the seeds ripe? They were falling off into other
plants while they were still green. Many of them came off - actually they
all came off- in this state. Are they ripe or were they never pollinated?
They are smaller than the last spike which is still ripening. The last
spikes seeds are nearly double the size of these first ones and also are
more "geometric". By this I mean they are more angular and the first ones
are round. Any thoughts?
