I have acorns from an oak tree. They look like: enter image description here

but I would like to speed up their maturation so they split and I can separate the caps: enter image description here

How can I speed up this maturation process?

    $\begingroup$ I am not sure but my instinct is to put them in a dry place with a lot of sun. $\endgroup$ – takintoolong Nov 26 '18 at 2:20

I would suggest putting them in the ground and watering them (Factors affecting acorn production and germination and early growth of seedlings and seedling sprouts).

  • $\begingroup$ Good idea, but in particular I'm not looking to grow a tree, rather to dismantle the acorn. $\endgroup$ – ChaimKut Nov 26 '18 at 17:08
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry. Apparently I misunderstood you. It seems to me that you should leave them to dry (but that's just my feeling). Good luck... $\endgroup$ – Olga Świder Nov 27 '18 at 8:34
