A Yahoo.com search shows the seeds should look like those in this image:

Congratulations there Dana.. will you leave it on till it falls off .. it looks like the pod has it's own leaf set attached... very interesting... so have you been hand pollinating .. or is this an unassisted occourance.. just lucky ...haha... that and great preperation... is it potted... throughout the year.. or was it dug up.. or did the enclosure get built around it.. just thinking of what you'll do to get it outside come warmer weather...and how the pod might react...
Have a great New Year there...

When I lived in Missouri, I had a huge Solandra maxima vine in a pot, which I dragged it in and out of the garage every fall/winter/spring. Since it blooms in the winter, I had no pollinators, thus, no seed pods, but it sure was a reliable bloomer once it got mature enough - loved that vine!

I hand pollenated it I put them in for the winter there in pots I do have 2 in the ground a varigated and regular we have not been too cold yet to make me figure out what I will do when it happens. They are growing well but not offering to bloom yet.

Lovely... they are special... they are winter blooming... the one at the brooklyn Botanical Garden was in full flower.. it must have had two dozen flowers opened last Saturday... The great gardens there are so close to me.. maybe between two and three miles away... I seldom go ... it's time I guess and parking .. but mostly the humility of seeing things doing so spectactularly... I hate it.. off now to spray the reemergence of the spydermites...

I would have never thought that this is in the Datura family. Good piece to read I met a older man at the flea market he was selling fruit trees. We were taking about brugmansia he said you know why they call them angel trumpets I said no. He says they smoke the flowers and the angels come to you. Choclate Brug said you smoke the flowers angels will be coming to get you alright LOL
