Desert Rose Seed Pods

I have a desert rose with two long seed pods. When the seed pod dries and I get the seed out, how long should I wait before planting and are there any special things I should know? Thanks, Al Dodd

Seed viability is always best the fresher the seeds are, so if you are ready to start growing them and feel you can keep the seedlings happy, you can plant them right away. Otherwise, you can store the seeds until you are ready. They should store well for at least 6 months, and some will even be viable for a year or so if stored well. Here is an article that can help with storing them:
