Item details

These dried seed pods from Physalis alkekengi plants are often referred to as Chinese Lanterns. In response to customer requests, I am now offering two options: natural or polyurethane coated. The natural have no coating; they are simply dried. They are somewhat fragile this way, and must be handled with care. The polyurethane coating helps strengthen the wall of the pod. The polyurethane coated pods are still fragile, but less so than without the polyurethane coating. The polyurethane coated seed pods are pictured in the listing.

These are real seed pods, so there are some natural imperfections in some of the pods, some discoloration, small lacey holes from bugs, etc.

Price is for nine seed pods, varying in size from about 2" long (excluding the stem) and 1 1/4" diameter to 1" long and 3/4" diameter.

Items will ship USPS First Class Parcel. Special precautions are taken to protect the product during shipping.

I have been contacted by customers regarding variations of what I offer in this listing, ranging from varying quantities and types, including skeleton pods. If you have special requests, please contact me. I am happy to respond to special requests, and will do my best to provide you with what you are looking for.
