Would you show us pictures of the fruit the seeds come from?
What I sent you is the dried fruit with the seed inside. One seed each. It's just a green ball shape before drying out. Nothing like the moon plant which is a large round pod with very sharp spikes with many seeds inside. It splits open after drying out to release the seeds.

Here are some other seeds I been waiting a couple years for.Took these pics earlier today. Picture 007.jpg Picture 013.jpg I had several of these plants until an Impressed tortoise ate them all. This plant showed up a couple years ago and I've been waiting for it to go to seed. Here's the whole plant from above. Picture 009.jpg Picture 011.jpg

Lol between my bad eyes and the phone size picture, my first thought in the first picture was that there was a mushroom growing in that plant. Lol

Anybody know why my figs are splitting open? It's a young tree, only about 4' tall. I water deeply once a week. The figs are ALMOST full size, green, and maybe about a week away from ripening. Thick green skin but bright red inside.
