: Hi my name is trish,My mother and i were out lookng at her split leaf and one of them has grown three dark pods on it to me its either seeds or maybe a flower can anyone help me with this. thanks

Hi Trish,

You say that you and your mother "were out" so I'm thinking that you live somewhere tropical and this isn't a houseplant. If you didn't see a bloom I suspect that you may have missed it. Here's the only picture I could find of a blossom ready to open.

I suspect that what you are seeing is a seed pod. I think the seeds are toxic if ingested. They also don't store well and need to be planted immediately if you want to grow plants from the seeds.

Hope this helped,
