Sandra:

I'll check out your blog. :>)

I've never heard of this plant growing from seed. We only grow them from cuttings here...it's easier.

I have much more success with cuttings of most plants...The best thing about seed is the cross polination. I had two different aeoniums in flower at the same time last summer so theres a chance of a few different ones germinating.

Sandra:

Yes, most people here plant trees/shrubs from cutting. You know what type of plant you'll end up with a cutting. Seeds can be highly variable...especially, for flowering plants. This is the reason why almost 99% of the time we grow Plumerias from cuttings.
