Barb, I had a few extra holes in my prop tray this afternoon and I just happened to take a few BH cuttings. If you email me in a few days i'll let you know how they are doing.

I have heard of bleeding heart seeds. Do these come directly from the flower?

Thanks

I have two red bleeding heart plants, both bloom but have had only one seed ever. A black, peas sized seed. Is it rare for them to make seed, and anything I can do to make them seed?

Are seeds a good way to propagate or is cuttings better?

i've been dipping my clippings in rooting horomone and putting them in a ziplock baggie with soil, (damp) and i blow that up and zip it shut, they root in a 2-4 weeks. ohhh don't forget to mist them befor you close the top, but make sure that when its closed that its all puffy!! kinda like blowing up a balloon!! LOL ~Medo :'))
