Japanese Morning Glory pollinating and checking Seed Pods

This is a video where I demonstrate how to pollinate morning glories.

Watch this video for a demonstration of how to check and see if your pods took and you have seeds on the way. It takes about a month for the pods to be ready and they should be brown and papery just ready to break open. It is a good idea to tie a very lightweight see through and breathe able jewelry bag over the pods to avoid losing dropped seeds. Take care that the bags are not encouraging mold growth.

Why is your morning glory dying after going to seed?  It is a natural part of the life cycle.
