Hi all,

I have got some Martynia annua claws but I have some problem opening them and get seeds free: to hard!

I put claw in water for days but it's seems impossible to open without damaging seeds.

Any suggestion?

Thanks,

Rita

What I do with devil claws is open the claw itself, kinda like a 'wishbone'. I then insert a flat head screwdriver or an awl in the pod, and gently coax the seeds out.

Thank you very much, Jim.

More or less the same I do with ibicella or proboscidea, M. annua claw is a bit different and very hard, cannot open it.

Hi Rita,

must be possible if you click on "Edit" in your post and then on the "Full Edit" button below the editor window. There are two buttons you can click: "Save changes" is left and "Full Edit" right. If you click "Full Edit" you can also change the topic title on top of the editor. :yes:

Unless it depends on what browser you use. Sometimes a website looks quite different in uncommon browsers.

Good luck!

Andreas

Thank you very much, Andreas.

Corrected my mistake :)

My Martynia claws are still there, some on the table and some in water. Any suggestion?

Greetings :)
