Interesting. I've never seen that seed before.
The amazing thing is I grew up with Bird of Paradise all around me and never noticed those seeds. Wow!
This came from a particular variety that grows quite large. The woman who showed me the seed pod told me the name but I don't remember. The dried seed pod looked like banana skins. I later found out the bird of Paradise is related to the banana.
Nature is awesome!
I thought it was something growing in a petri dish ... well, that's nature too! Anyway, you must still be in Fla. b/c you don't see that in Vermont!
When we moved into our house in 1991, we took out the Bird of Paradise plants and planted crotons, instead. No regrets.
I hope you try to plant it. You have nothing to lose and if you succeed--- wow.
My aunt used to grow them in her yard but I've never seen one of their seed pods or their seeds.They are such an unusual flower but I had no idea they were related to bananas. I do know their are some that are just gigantic but the flowers aren't as pretty.
What a nice discovery. This is natural? It is not colored with some fungicide or fertilizer? Amazing.
Quite a shade of blue. It is interesting how things that grow in warmer climates seem to accentuate color.
Gorgeous! Not sure if it will be successful in Vermont, but I wish you well!
What an intense blue color. Good luck with planting.
Isn't nature a wonderful thing ...Super coloursAll the best Jan
Wow! Just amazing!
