When the fruit are ripe/mature thay will begin falling off the spadix.
Clean the outer covering off the seeds (the seeds pulp out when the ripe
fruit is squeezed between finger and thumb) wash-rinse the seeds off in
water in a fine strainer, sow the seed in chopped wet sphagnum in a large
zip-loc bag kept in a warm, bright area out of any direct sun. When the
seedlings are large enough transplant to small pots w/ a suitable loose,
well draining mix.
My anthurium gracile has some nice red berries on it. I would appreciate
any recommendations on when to pick them and any seed growing culture tips.
