I purchased these on the WISH app. They were under $1 and advertised as Monstera Seeds. I knew 100% that these were NOT monstera seeds, but had to snag them to try to figure out what they are. At first glance, they look to be bamboo - but I’m still not solid with that. Any guesses on what these could be?


  • Need more detailed info. Is this a samara type seed (like ash/maple tree for example) where the seed is integrated into the tip of a wing designed to let the seed flutter in the wind as it falls? If it is a pod, crack one open and what do you see? Aug 23, 2019 at 10:03

Those seeds really look like American Tuliptree (Liriodendron tulipera) seeds. It's very strange that someone would mistake them for monstera.
