I lost this seed pod and now I have no idea what it is. Does someone recognize it?
Thanks,
Mickey

Not a clue! Question though- you 'lost' it?

Someone was kind enough to send it to me. I got busy and most likely put something on it and forgot about it. Now I have no idea what it is.

I might be crazy (of course I am!), but it looks like a Milk weed pod to me. How big is it? Jo

ok, I have more photos at last. Yes it does look like a small milk weed pod only a little smaller. It is 23/4 inches long and less than 1 inch wide.

No...a milweed pod is full of little seeds that are attached to their own little parachutes to carry them far and wide...and we use to play with them as fishes. LOL Jo

Thanks, I've never seen a burg seed pod...I'm not good with brugs. My hibiscus and even doing so much better inside. I don't think they are very happy about our heat.
