Exploding cucumber

Ive got some seeds of Exploding Cucumber :D
(cyclanthera explodens)
has anyone grown these bizzare sounding plants? the place I bought them from said to wear goggles or a face-visor when picking them as they explode so hard..
http://www.realseeds.co.uk/cucumbers.html has some more about them.
If anyone in the UK would like a couple of the seeds for it then i'd be very happy to swap for any other weird veg seeds.

tillandsia funckiana

I just bought a tillandsia funckiana. I've seen some older tillandsias grow into a ball shape and I want to encourage my itty bitty baby tillandsia to do the same. How should I go about doing that? Do I need to attach it to a certain shaped substrate or what? Right now I just have it hanging from a line on my windowsill. I honestly don't quite know what to do with it. Any advice?
