When to harvest drosera intermedia seeds?

When are Drosera Intermedia seeds ready to harvest? The flower stalk is turning brown and I see some black spots on the seed pod. Sorry for the horrible picture but I couldn't get it to focus on the seed pods.

Starting at the first flower to open, usually the bottom one, they'll turn dark Brown or Black and crack open.

When the last one cracks open, you can harvest the whole stalk.

Or you can cut off each individual seed pod as it cracks.

Store your freshly harvested seeds and pods in a paper envelope or packet for a few weeks.

Storing in a ziploc or any plastic bag is an almost certain invitation to mold.
On top of that, you've never seen static cling like thousands of dust-mote sized seeds adhering to a plastic bag.

Just my 2¢ worth.
