Okay, I just replied Betty regarding my current story with a 21 day old pod.

Linda, that's just unreal!  Was there any stalk to feed that pod?  How many
germinated from it?  I would assume just one would have.

You'll hear whoops and hollers from me all the way from Michigan in 2 months
if my pod germinates anything!

Yes - most amazing one was only 5 days post pollination when I accidentally
knocked it off.  Matured the pod on a paper plate in a window sill.

But I wouldn't expect that from a pod with a stalk that rotted off - this one
snapped off a healthy stalk.
