Sorry I couldnít get a super detailed picture with my iPhone. The blue lines show indentations where there were seeds. All the way on the left there is a seed in red. The fruit (pod) will open and the seeds burst out like many others in the oxalidaceae family. Thatís their method of seed distribution.
Oh ok got it. So that explains why when I open up the pod I couldnít find any seeds. I basically have to get to it before it shoots them out?
