I have a MIND READER X PEBBLE FRESH (1 pod) and I'm taking the risk of 
losing the plant, but will remove the pod at 10 weeks, and let it ripen off 
the plant.
Also FANCY WOMAN X HOT SEAT (SDB plicata) with the plant looking very sick, 
because it is in a small pot, with a poor root system. I can afford to lose 
this plant as I have more of the same.

I agree with Rosalie. It is not worth waiting for bee pods, when you have 
seeds of known parentage. I like to clean up the stalks and dead leaves as 
soon as possible, and these become an annoyance.
However, I have 1 pod on POWER SURGE, which I think I crossed with STORMY 
CIRCLE (SDB plicata) and forgot to mark. I will most likely keep this and 
grow the seeds.

I won't have a lot of seeds to plant this year, so 1 more pod won't get in 
the way.
Cheers, Jan
