Very Cool! I don't know much about Epi's or their seeds/fruit. I have a couple of small plants received as cuttings a year or so ago in trades but no blooms yet.

I just googled: when are epiphyllum seed pods ripe?" and found this: The photo of her seed pod looks just like yours in size and color and someone told her it is ripe if it gives to the touch ... I guess give it a little bit of a squeeze and see if it's kinda soft?

How exciting it will be sowing the seeds and waiting to see what you get! Good luck and please keep us posted!
