I love the Bacopa Plant but I don't want to pay $4-5.00 for 1 Plant. I would love to know how to collect Seeds from this Plant. Thank You

Hi,
There are only a couple varieties that are grown from seed and in turn I would assume make seed. The others are all propagated through cuttings and do not make viable seed. The $4-5 plants you like I'm going to assume are varieties from cuttings.
You can over winter the plant or cuttings if you are into doing that. Otherwise, you'll need to buy plants every year. To take the sting out of that you could tell people you would love gift certificates to your favorite garden center instead of other gifts.

At the risk of veering a bit of topic: how easy are bacopa to propagate from cuttings? Do they root quickly, in water?
