Senecio kleiniiformis
I've put several pics of my plant in the entry here. Yesterday evening, I noticed the peduncle was totally shriveled, and it looked like the seeds would soon fly away in the wind, like dandelions, so I took it off. It was outside when it bloomed & I saw the cutest, tiniest bees visiting the flowers many times.

Do folks think these seeds are viable? I hope so! I scattered them in a bed, hopefully there will be some sprouts before cold weather comes (and that they germinate quickly.) What are your thoughts? TIA!

TYVM! Seeds rarely sprout in my presence, unless unwanted. It will be a serious shock if anything happens!

That sounds like me. I am death to seeds. But when of my succulents bloomed last year I threw the dead flower heads in the pot and I had baby plants. I was shocked.

Don't forget to update this post. It will be interesting.

My Senecio klienia bloomed and I had tons of little parachute seeds and I tried my best but nothing happened. Maybe I didn't wait long enough....so that's my only tip! Wait a long time!

Maybe try them covered and placed on top of the soil. Because they look like Dandelion seed heads those lay on top of the soil and root. It might be the same with these seeds.
