Yes, seeds will grow after the flowers die. Let the fruits ripen on the Prickly - they will come off easily when ripe.

it should be said that you can also cut or break off a pad and stick it in the dirt to get a new plant they root very easily and it will save you a few years to get flowers on the new plant vs from seed. collecting seeds as a form of propagation for cactus is only good if hybridizing them with other cactus to get different flowers.

Or if you're interested in seeing the natural seedling variation that reflects genetic diversity.... Smiling

That's something I have enjoyed with our native succulents, which can be quite variable. Thumbs up
