Started Lily of the Nile from seeds?
I've collected the seeds from my plants plus some from the one's at Sam's in Tallahassee Big Grin and I haven't found a lot of info about starting from seed...just seeds for sale.
Found a couple places but the info didn't match.

Karen, here's a link to Gardeners' World where they show planting the seeds.

Thank you FFG! That is better than anything I found and agrees with one I found so I'll go that route.
I picked the pods when they started to turn brown...same with the ones I selected from the plants at Sam's. Some folks down there looked at me strangely when I was picking them... Big Grin
They were just going to go to waste down there if they weren't picked...they cut the bloom stems off after the bloom is done. I caught them at a time that someone hadn't done it the last time they serviced the landscape.
