With my Capes, I wait until the pod starts to darken, that tells me that the plant is done cooking it. I then remove the pod and put it in a small bowl. When the pod is good and dry, it will split and the seeds begin to fall out. I help it along by gently rolling the pod between my finger and thumb, usually directly into an origami envelope, instant seed pack. I try to not squeeze too hard because I don't want to crush the pod. If you get bits of pod in there, it's really not a problem, I just try to avoid it if I can.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
