Seed dispersal – isn’t it a fascinating topic! Here this strezilia tree is advertising it’s pods through it’s rich orange tone. Such dynamic processes will kick in to get the seeds moving, wind, gravity, birds, mice, humans ( me in this case!) have designs on depositing the seeds in different locations. It will be interesting to track how many take root in the future.

Hi Liz, Greetings from Nairobi!
Always enjoy your photos – but Future Tense one seems to be missing? Looking forward to Simon’s Town Easter break!
Al the best Chris
Great, chat via email? Missing pic is driving me purple with frustration…. that’s phoneography for you!
What a seed pod. Yah, I hope all the seeds will take root.
Thanks seeker, i hope so! They’re stylish plants, the flowers a power house of nectar which the birds love.
Great seedling 😆
Aren’t the pods a fabulous design 🙂 Love their ramshackled, dishevelled look…. must admit i’m fascinated by nature’s cunning designs; ever seen the brazil nut tree pods? Wonderful packaging! Watch this space ….seedlings coming up soon ..:)
If you do the tracking please keep us posted!
Some speculation going on here…. starlings feasting on the seeds, so now for delivery of the end production?!
Unusual tree, unusual post, unusual take on the challenge.
Interesting — as your blog always is.
Thanks T, glad you find it interesting…. i rather enjoy the offbeat!
