The seed pod usually turns fairly clear right before they crack open. You will be able to see that there are seeds inside because it’ll be black on the inside. Once they pop open they scatter at the slightest movement so try to harvest them before they crack.

Also you could take a 1 inch x 1 inch plug out of that pot and put it in your new pot. It will spread out and fill the pot.

Thanks so much. I can myself either trying to separate a plug anot not succeeding (there's a lot of droseras babies in there) or holding the new pot underneath and tapping the pod lol. "Come on. Seeds go in here" like a crazy person.
