Dear JJ,
Thanks so much for the picture and the information. Boy this is really something to me. I have hundreds of seed pods. When I planted this vine I had some "seeds" that were about the size of a pea. I had to file and soak them for about 2 days before I planted them and then they took forever to grow. That is what I have been looking for. Thanks to you, it appears I have been looking for the wrong thing. Where would you say the seeds I had come from??

Thanks JJ,
Must have been pretty impatient!! The pods are here and doing great. Boy am I happy about this as these flowers are beautiful evan tho I had a hard time starting them evan tho I "scratched and soaked" the seeds.

After the moonflower blooms ~ the whole thing falls off ~ there is just a bare vine left where the flower was... Is that where the seed pod grows? on the end of the bare vine?
