This is the last of her #redflowers I'll setup Spring. I'll collect the few seeds left once they dry alittle more on the stalk and start more a few wks before Spring. #canna #redflowers #upclose #multicoloredfoliage #tropical

comment
Acetaker

No @Doomsdoor one of them had already started shedding putter color. But,I cut mine and let dry for a few days and keep a CK on them. I have cut these b4 and gotten quite a few Canna seeds and the seedlings were given away all but a few which were a bright green foliage that came from same plant😊 Hope That Made Sense.. lol 😄

Do you wait till spring to plant? @Acetaker @jennlamaye

4w
comment
Acetaker

Hi Melissa!🙂 No,I'm planting now. When the pods become ready to take seeds,they r softer to nick(so moisture is easier to get to seeds inside),and germination I'd shorter(mine was 2 weeks). You can wait til Spring (germinate indoors)and place plant where I like. I don't know what zone u r in,but some suggest u b #liftinfall and some don't....I do know other ppl leave outdoors and make sure they r protected with mulch and leave some of the plant to help as well... I hope this helps you☺

Thx! @Keely,all I did was 1)Soaked the seeds for 48 hrs after knicking the seed with a knife,so the water could be absorbed by seed. The seeds are hard as cement,so u have to do it. 2) Placed seeds in soil. All I had in pot was reg topsoil with a small amt. of humus mixed in, took a pencil,made a 3in hole,dropped anf covered in soil and soaked the soil and Tada!! It was just luck..it rare to have them germinate. I had 4 seeds and so far just the one has popped up.😍 Shelley @ShelleySnyder cont.

@Acetaker I tried for the first time this year because "Why not?" They're free. :) I got almost all my seeds to germinate, but then rotted out a majority of them by over watering... However, I have one beautiful plant nearly 1.5 feet tall in my yard now, and I gave the other survivor to a friend. I was pretty proud of myself. I'd do it again!
