Anyone ever grown this from seed? I've grown it for a few years and enjoyed the blooms, but this year I grew two plants side by side from different sources. For the first time, both set seeds! I got 3 "pods" from one, & 1 pod from another. Hurray!

Gonna be interesting to see if I can grow them out!

I had one for a couple of years. Never set seeds. I lost it to a freeze. Bought it at Caldwell's in Rosenberg, Tx. Beautiful flowers! Hope you're successful.

Your Juanulloa mexicana is in the Solanaceae Family of plants. Being a tropical plant I doubt seeds require any stratification.

For most plants in the Solanaceae Family, plant the seeds fairly shallow and keep soil on the warm side. If the seeds are large and hard coat or have a corky coat, break the coat at least half way around the seed before planting. Keep the soil moist but more on the dry side of moist.
