I just ran across this picture you posted in the plants database and was wondering if you planted the seeds from this and if so, what kinds of plants did you get?

I sprouted some seeds from a pelargonium that I bought this past summer! I'm so excited to see what kinds of blooms come from it!

Hi Rose, I never did collect this pod, I knew even less about seed sowing then than I do now! Can't wait to see what you get though :)

Aw, too bad! I have never been even able to find the seeds on the pelargoniums until this year. And even then I wasn't sure that I had! They don't look like the ones you buy. The ones you buy are really tiny things and the ones I grew were kinda longish with a feathery thing on the end. Even as I planted them I wasn't sure that they were actually seeds! I put them between wet paper towels and lo and behold they germinated. Now I have them under lights and they are about 2 inches tall!
