In case of Hibiscus, if the flower is pollinated, a seed pod will develop. After the pollen fertilizes an ovule, the fertilized ovule develops into a seed. The ovary at the base of the flower will swell. Over the course of the next six to 14 weeks, seeds will develop inside it. Eventually the pod will dry and open, releasing about a dozen seeds.
