    Does it self polinate?

    Yes, with good seed set even if the flowers do not open fully.


    What color?

    Pink. The flowers do not open often.

    How many seeds?

    Tons!


    When do I pick the seed pod?

    After 3/4 of the pods are brown.

    Do the seeds need special treatment?

    No. Just typical storage considerations. No stratification is needed.

    Where do I start them?

    On the appropriate substrate in pots. High humidity until germination accomplished.

    Are peat Pots okay?

    I use regular pots. I have never used peat pots.

    Will the plant die after the flower?

    It is not a long lived species, so it may.

    How long do the seedlings take to mature?

    I think a year will see a flowering plant. It varies based on conditions and technique.
