    Would you guess that it is a fungus or a type of seed pod?
    What does it smell like?

    Some palms have funky seed pods.

    That is weird.

    Florida is a magnet for invasive species.

    This one is probably from several light years away.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    No idea! But if they were on your porch, they must have come from nearby, I'd think. Got a County Extension Agent/Office nearby? Ask them.

    Great idea. That or a nearby University/College might have someone who could ID them.

    Mighty curious looking isn't it... I have not ever seen something like that , that I can recall. At first it reminded me of some kind of corn.

    G'Luck!

    P.S> - How do ya think they got on your porch? Wind? Maybe there is some of the original plant nearby you could look at & take pics as well... ???

    762 is on to something, looks like it may be a palm flower bud.

    After going & looking at some of the images from NYFirefighters357 link, I think it may be a Sago Palm "pod". Here are some pics:

    Source: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/orn...er-removal.htm

    Could be it!


    Nice guesses, 762 shooter & NYFirefighter357

    If it not the Above: perhaps it could be a Coconut bud:


    Or maybe part of a Yucca plant:


    Yep.. Best to ask someone who is an expert of the like to find out.
