I KNOW it's a really, really dumb question but do African Violets seed? And if so how do I know when it has seeds that are ready to be collected? Thank you and NO JOKES,lol!!!!
Yes they do but I've only seen one pod in many years and several AV's. It dries and splits. I just kept a close eye on my seed pod but I guess you could cover it with something to catch the seed. I know very little about AV's but I'm sure you will get an educated answer if you post on the African violet forum.
Thank you karyn1, I bought two for each of my daughters and they seem to be doing really wel for Home Depot purchases. I just didn't know how they seed or where to even look. This is my first experience with African Violets so I have no idea. Thanks again
Most people keep the spent blooms picked off so that they will continue to bloom and no seeds can form.
I don't know if I would have the discipline to leave one with dried up flowers alone long enough to harvest seeds if they did get pollinated, but I grew some from purchased seeds years ago.
