Semp Flowers/Seeds

Bostonian(z6 MA)June 29, 2004

I purchased this semp (name unknown) in May and it's about to flower without having any chicks. How does one go about collecting and growing the seeds

Thanks,

Kathy

I am not sure this works on all but the same thing happened to me last year. (A bloom and no chicks) After the flower died there was some green under the stem I planted that part and it is growing.

Maybe someone can tell us about if the flowers have seeds. I also covered the flowers with dirt to see what happens nothing so far this year from the flowers.

Hi, mine are in bloom too. Done some research, mother plant will die but will leave behind some babies, so keep an eye on it, then you may be able to answer some of the ?`s I had. Lorraine
