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.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
