I love the million bells and bacopa but can these be grown form seed and where are the seeds?

RE: million bells and bacopa

I just tried to root the bacopa from cuttings and they took...first time...I took cuttings about 6 inches long, stripped about the last 3 inches off and put the stems in water (tuperware container). I changed the water about every three days, and after a while little black hairs were on the stems....I didn't know if they were left over shredded leaves from when I stripped the stems, but figured it must be roots, so I planted them in a pot of starter soil...they never wilted and seem to be doing fine. I have a second batch in water...will see how they do. You should try it to see if it works for you.

Callibrachoa (Million Bells) root easily also.

In all my years of growing Million Bells, I had never seen seeds on them until this year. But, evidently they only produce seed in spring and early summer because I haven't seen any more since it got real hot. ???????
