My camellia Japonica produced a see pod this year. By the time I discovered it the outer husk had opened to reveal the inner seed. After searching around on t'internet to try and find out some information about this occurence and how to propagate said seed pod, I decided to lightly crack the inner pod to aid germination? Rightly or wrongly I am glad I did because inside was a juicy grub. The only tell tale sign that a grub had infiltrated the seed was a tiny hole which had been sealed. Does anyone have any knowledge about what kind of grub it might have been and how it enters and presumably one day leaves the confines of its incubator.
