    Cultivating D. Capensis from seed

    y D. Capensis just put up a really beautiful flower stalk, which is dotted all over with black seeds. I've been wanting a few more of these plants, but I'm not really sure how to go about it. I'd use the usual media of peat + perlite for the plants, but how should I go about planting the seeds? Do I just pull them off of the stalk, then stick them in the dirt a small amount down? Should they be sown on the surface? How many should I plant per pot? I'm kinda new to all this, so some help would be awesome. Thanks in advance!

    The flowers will die and produce seed-filled pods if they were fertilized (which they self.) Seed isn't grown directly on the stalk.

    Don't bury them, just sprinkle them on the surface of the media. Plant them all in one pot if you want.
