Collecting & Planting Seeds

Plants grow a white bulb that will hang off the plant. As the bulb ages, it will turn brown and split into three sections. The brown pods will drop brown seeds that will become next year’s plants.

Collect the seed and plant in rich, dry soil in shady, woodland areas.  If you would like to starting seed indoors, in a container. the seed cannot be replanted or disturbed for two years.
