Hi Pamela
My pods seem to take a long time to dry off, even when brown for many weeks, and no longer on the plant. Usually they have between 3 and 5 seeds a pod. I sow mine towards the end of summer.

Dear PBSers-
Several months ago I wrote to you about saving seed from S,. madeirensis
and mentioned I planned to cover the pods with muslin bags to avoid losing
the seed. I did this and the pods are fast ripening and now I need your
advice about what to do from here. I will plant in the fall here in
Arizona. What is the best way to store the pods? I have not broken apart
any of the dry pods and am not even certain they contain numerous seeds per
pod or whether the pod is the seed itself.  I've grown many bulbs from seed
but this one confounds me and some of you said you have experience. Please

Thanks so much.

All best,
Pamela Slate
