Planting voo doo lilys
Thanks for writing. It sounds like you've been given the fruits of a voodoo lily --- so first you'll need to squish the fruits to separate out the seeds. Then wash the seeds off with water and soak them in lukewarm water overnight.
Then either plant them outdoors in a sheltered spot in your garden --- or in moist seed-starting mix in the house. Keep them moist but not soggy and in a bright spot and they should sprout in three to four weeks.
The plants do bear dramatic flowers. Be warned that they smell like rotting meat, however, and will attract flies during their bloom period.
