Q.I have an Aristolochia Macrophylla plant and want to know where to find the seeds

Zone Melbourne, FL 32934 | Anonymous added on December 27, 2019 | Answered

I live in Florida and I am seeing on your site that you can grow this from the seeds. I have a huge plant that I have had for many years. I just can’t figure out where the seeds are. Are they located in the green part of the plant below the flower? After mine flower this part falls off with the flower. I have never seen a separate pod that is shown on websites. Any help would be appreciated. I want to start one of these for my aunt for her 90th birthday this year. If another method of starting one is better please advise. I love your website and have learned so much here!

There is, actually, a much more reliable method for reproducing this plant! You can take a tip cutting when the plant is not flowering, or you can pull flowers off of that stem for a cutting. This will grow a plant that is a complete replicate of the original.

This article will help you to take a cutting using both newer growth and mature growth: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/how-to-root-cuttings-from-various-shrubs-bushes-and-trees.htm


P.S. I had a Dutchman's pipevine for years and never saw the pods either.
