thanks guys---That is what I thought--
also somebody (don't remember who) advised to put a piece of nylon around the egg when it is near time to split open--said that way you would not lose any seeds
--does anybody remember this?
I am having a real hard time getting mine to stay alive so the eggs will ripen
I am having to mist & water them most every day---and the leaves are more yellow than green--OH ! they are all in pots--and are outside---
I did have them inside after the eggs began to grow--but they were not looking so good so I took them back out---they are on my east facing roofed porch.
