Q.My moon vine is dead but the seed pods are still green. Should I cut them off and try to dry them indoors?

Since the vines are already dead but the seed pods are still white, green and purple, do I just wait for them to dry and turn brown? Or do I cut them off now and dry them indoors?

I would wait and watch very carefully. Once you see the first sign of cracking, then you can get the seeds out. This give them the best chance at maturity. You can cut the pod off now, but some of the seeds may not ripen, fully.
