This seed pod was from some sort of vine growing in Grand Cayman. Anyone have any idea what it might be? TIA

It is a type of wisteria. For some reason the white and blue varieties have shorter seed pods.

RE: ID Tropical Seed Pod

I don't think it's a wisteria, at least not one of the varieties that grows in the cooler climates. I have a couple varieties of wisteria and the pods are very different. Wisteria pods are fuzzy and hard when dry. This was pliable with no fuzz. It was also a softer green stemmed plant, not woody, even the older parts of the vine.

RE: ID Tropical Seed Pod

Now that it's growing I'm hoping that I can get an ID. It's not a terribly fast grower but maybe it will take off now that I can keep it outside.
