I picked a seed head of a bird of paradise plant while I was in Florida. Are the seeds inside that seed case? How shall I propagate

Unfortunately, that is far from viable. Those seem to have been just barely starting to form.

If you can manage a pup from the original plant, this will be a far better way to propagate these. Seeds can be very difficult to work with here, and flowering can take 10 years from a seed-grown plant. By using an offshoot or division, you can guarantee a flowering specimen.
