I've admired the bladder pod and fairy duster (Calliandra ssp) in a friend's yard. This summer I asked if I could gather some seed from their plants.
I scattered a few seeds in some pots and watched over them. To my happy surprise, I have small plants.
They aren't quite ready to put in the ground, but some are ready to be moved to their own pots.
