My statice seedlings (about 3 wks along) are starting to turn brown. Could the problem be too much water? I water with an eye dropper once a day, about 2 full eye droppers full per plant. They seem to be getting adequate light. Should I water once every two days?
Your seedlings have probably been over-watered. You should allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering - you can touch the soil to determine this.

I found this information.
At the base of each sepal is a seed imbedded in a membrane. You can simply remove the flowers and by brushing them with your hand on mature flower stock and they will fall into your hand.
The seeds are very tiny!
Yes, you may dig these up for transplant. Just make sure to dig about 2 feet out to make sure you get most of the root mass, so that it can better handle transplant. I would advise mixing in a good organic potting soil to the new area before planting. This will help the plant to survive in its new location.
