Collecting Obedient Plant seeds

Holladay, UT(Zone 5a)

My Obedient Plant is done blooming, and I can see lots of seeds where the flowers were. The plant is still very green though. Do I need to wait until it turns brown before collecting the seeds? The little "cups" that they are in are open, and when I shook a small area, a couple of seeds fell out, but not all of them.

Thanks, Natalie

Wait till they are a bit browner to make sure they are ripe, but keep an eye out to catch them before they fall. There's a really good discussion here:
