In that case, I'd put half or more away for a later date. Germinate
75-100 and plant out (in the garden) the strongest based on root
development. If you like what you see plant more.

I have 241 seed from 5 pods but they were deliberate so I'll plant most

I never know what kind of success rate I will have, so if I have blooms
& pollen available, & weather cooperates, I usually pollinate several
blooms in attempted crosses. I've had two or three pods from one cross
take now and then, more often lucky just to get one.
Both parents were apparently very fertile! So let's say it was more or
less an accident.
