That is great is the seed on the flower when it dies, as I have one my son got me for Christmas.

yes, you have to pollinate the flowers first then let the seed pod ripen.

when the seed ripens get an old small tub fill to half with water and a small lump of charcoal in the bottom and float seeds on top till you see roots growing then pot on as normal :-) good luck sixpence.
