Re: CULT: Can this pod be saved?

If it is still attached to the stalk, put a splint on it and let it continue 
to mature. Rubber bands and bamboo skewers work pretty good.

If not still attached, take the collected pod and trim the remaining stalk 
and stick in a potato. I tried the potato thing last year. I could tell no 
difference in potato held pods and those just left layin' on the desk. The potato 
did not hurt anything and it made a neat holder. Certainly it may even have 
helped. Pods handled each way germinated.

I let both groups of broken off pods (about 4 of each) ripen to the crackin' 
point before removing the seeds.
