abutilon megapotamicum

Could any one please tell me the best and easiest way to collect seed from this plant? I read that I need to let them stay on the plant to dry but the flower falls off before then I have brought some in the house to dry, but I just dont seem to be having much luck. Any help would be apprecitiated. I have also taken clippings of this plant to propagate, not much luck there either.

Hi Mary,
The flowers are probably not getting pollinated so there is no seed to develop and the flowers just drops off. Try hand pollinating the new flowers that open. A little paint brush works great. I've used one to pollinate key lime blossoms in the winter.
