I have a big patch of money plant in my yard. Last year, I allowed the interesting seed pods to dry on the plant, before I cut them. Big mistake. In the rain and moisture, they'd already begun to mildew, and had lost their silvery luster.
So this year I'm trying something else -- cutting them while green, and bringing them inside to dry. But money plant is a biennial, I think, so it seems to go on a 2-year rotation. This is the year of the greenery. I think next year I'll have a bumper crop of the "money." So, if the drying works like a charm this year, next year, I'll be rich!
I'll let you know if they turn out. Wouldn't it be easy if it grew on trees?
