Yes, they can be used to collect seeds once the berries (fruit) have ripened. You can then collect, clean and dry the seeds. Be sure to remove the fleshy coating on seeds before storing. One thing to keep in mind, however, is the fact that it will take much longer to grow monkey grass this way. It is easier and faster to simply divide the plant.
