I know, I know…......John will probably be shocked that I did not prepare the brug for winter ages ago. But my excuse is this…......

I only hope now that I have brought it into my spare b-room (the coolest room) that it will not drop everything, leaves and this seed pod. It has been developing this seed pod for months. Probably bc it was too cold outside in the garage for it to develop properly.

It is not that this is an especially spectacular brugmansia….it is just that I am so surprised that it is trying to seed.

Well, it’s in the house now, so we’ll see what happens next. Photobucket

Well done, Iris43. I hope it keeps the seed pod for you as well. Just think of all the little ones that you’ll have next year. Alas, they tend to take several years before they bloom when grown from seed, but it is an interesting experience to go through – sort of like “raising one’s family”.

Is the reason you put it in your coolest room because you are trying to mimic a cooler season or is it the only place that you have space for it? Pretty exciting! I hope your seed pod continues to develop.

MsDeb, I will definately keep you updated of any significant happening.

Jroot, I’m not sure I would have the patience to attempt to grow a brug from seed. I will send you the seed, if I get any that look viable, ok?

Robin, The temperature in the garage was only just above the freezing temperature outside. Bringing it inside the house will be a big shock to it. Even if I had brought it indoors earlier in the fall, it would tend to drop it’s leaves from shock, so at this time, I put it in the coolest room hoping to lessen the shock. I am amazed that it has held onto the seed pod this long.

That makes sense to me, Iris. Good luck!
