I failed to deadhead one of my glads after blooming and the individual bloom terminals are now swollen and producing a feathery interior. What is this? Can new plants be grown from this? I do know about harvesting new corms from the old ones but this just has me wondering if there is a use for the production from the bud sites.

They will sometimes make seedpods, from the flowers, though these would take much to long to grow using seeds. That's why most people simply propagate new plants through division of their offsets, which can be done when digging up the corms for winter storing or division in fall for areas not requiring winter storage (like yours).
