Hey, as far as I know, and I'm not expert, but I believe these are propagated by cuttings, not seeds.

I've grown pelargoniums from purchased seed. I have not tried to save my own seed.

My suspicion is that your flowers did not get pollenated.

Hmmm. Hit the Submit button prematurely.

Anyway, maybe try pollinating the flowers manually. One way would be to transfer pollen with a small brush. Another way would be to pluck off an anther with tweezers and brush it against a stigma.

The link I attached has lots of photos. Scroll over and click on picture 5 to see a large picture of a seed pod. The seeds are in the swollen area of the pod.

Good luck.

Jim
