I have some wonderful news! The first pod which had a threatened pregnancy finally split open tonight and produced tons of seed! Apparently the ‘infection’ was only on surface superficial layer and did not contaminate the dry seeds inside. Gestation was only 4 months which was surprising to me as other species took 6-12 months!

The second pod is one month behind. So hopefully more seeds.

I’m just happy the pods have not weakened the plant as two new growths are emerging nicely.

Happy to report that the second pod has matured and on its way to lab.

Also it has 3 new growths!!! It’s clumping!
