The seeds can be found inside the tufts of cotton on the plant. When the papery husks open up and the cotton puffs become dry to the touch, the seeds are ripe. Cut off the papery husks, pull out the puffs of cotton and you'll find the black seeds. Save these in an airtight container (stored in a cool, dark place) and in the spring you can plant the seeds.
