As noted in my description, this plant was purchased at a nursery. Once the bloom drops, seeds will mature within the pod and once dry, they can be harvested. This is my first swamp hibiscus so I am working this as it matures! I can also tell you the bloom is good for one day; it drops leaving the pod.
