READY FOR TAKEOFF - Milkweed fruits (pods), when mature, split lengthwise releasing seeds. Each seed is attached to fluffy hairs (floss) that enable wind dispersion. A recent study found that the vast majority of wind dispersed seeds fall within 33 feet - but about 20% went farther - at least one in the study traveled up to 164 feet.
