How very cool I'll be watching to see how it goes. I've killed many poinsettas so I hope to see someone grow one from seed.

You may get a surprise starting them from seed! They may revert back to what they used to looked like in the early days before hybidizing!
All the named cultivars are propagated through cuttings and tissue culture so the offsprings are all clones of the original!

It could be depending on your expectations of what the seeds will untimately become!
It will be a good 2 years before you will know what they look like!

Ron is right. I find just snapping a limb and sticking it in a root bed is esay when trying to increase your plants.

I would love to . I keep saying that I will post on the weekends. I have dial up at home so it is like a bad traffic jam to sit at the computer. I guess I will have to save pics on disc so I can post from work. Give me a few days I'll get you some pics!
My aunt had one that was about 10 feet around and about 8 feet tall. I have never been able to accomplish that. I have an area that I want to try planting several as a visual barrier, or like a living fence.

Did you use fertilizer while it was actively growing outdoors?
Use one with a low nitrogen number....say 10-15-30 or similar ratio!
