I don't know. My grandparents have Impatiens glandulifera but the seedpods explodes qhit the touch when thay are still green. I'll try to dry them but thay don't look exactly like that.

No, it's not the Impatiens - I was sent some from India about 30 yrs ago and the name eludes me for the moment, but it will come back eventually, and I will let you know - senility is both a joy and a bewilderment!

Could it be,

(Scindapsus aureus) - Devils Ivy.

It`s just that the leaves look very similar to it although a bit on the yellow side.

Don`t know if that is the normal colour of the plant or just lacking in something apart from light.
