Nastursium Seeds

Asked September 14, 2020, 6:25 PM EDT

Do nastursium seeds need to dry out before they are planted? When they first separate from the mother plant they are green and soft coated.

Thank you for your question. Since you won't be planting them again until spring, let them dry out on paper towels, so they don't develop mold over the winter. Here is an Extension column on them: https://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=30475 Good luck!
