A different Neomarica question

My Neomarica caerulea after a second year of extravagant inflorescence (easily 
over 100 flowers over a 2-month period), produced 3 seed pods.  It has never 
produced seed pods before.  They have not yet dehisced, although the pods formed 
many months ago (there is, of course, the possibility that either they are 
sterile or that Neomarica pods are indehiscent).  I am loath to extract the 
seeds while the pods are still tightly closed lest I collect them before they 
are ready.  Perhaps one of the members has some experience and can advise about 
when to collect the seed.
