Cannas: Domehomedee picture (harvesting canna seed?)
In reply to: harvesting canna seed?
I have been growing canna from seed this year. I remove them from the plants when the "pod" splits on it's own. Then I put them in a open container until they dry some so they don't mold. If you plan on keeping them for some time the frig is a good place as it will keep them from drying out too much. The sooner they are planted the better. I don't nick them and you certainly don't need to cold stratify them as they are semi-tropical and don't naturally live where it gets cold. If you plant them immediately they seem to do best. I pot them up in my unheated greenhouse in gallon pots and they germinate quickly, within two weeks.
