Dennis: Tell   Muhlstein  used to say that the mold on the seeds did not
matter. I have made no tests to prove it one way or the other. After our
four days of rain there were a few opening pods that had considerable mold
in them. At times I have used powders to kill the mold, but now I just let
it go. Maybe a light brush with a hair dryer to soak up excess moisture
might help. I'll be anxious to hear what others say. Lloyd Z in Durham NC
