Hi Mary,
It depends which type you have. I have E. bannaticus, and when the 'ball' falls apart, each little piece has a seed it in sort of shaped like a little brown bullet. If you pinch it at the end where it was connected the seed will shoot out. With others, like E. ritro, I believe, each little piece IS the seed. Do you know which type you have?

Badseed I think it's the same with e.ritro. That's the one I have. However, I've found that each seed does not contain a seed - a lot of them are empty.
