: dear gardeners,
: I am located in the tropical climate of Malaysia. I had bought a few hanging baskets of petunia of different hybrids from the local nursery as seeds are not anymore commonly found to be on sale in the shops.

: My question:
: How can I propagate my petunias from the existing ones. Some said it is possible by cutting of its new stems? If I am to use the seeds from the flowering plants which I bought for propagation purposes,how can I obtain the seeds from the plants? from the dead flowers?
: Thank You

If you look on the stems near the flowers little stems with a opd on the end will come up. You may think that it is a bloom bud but if you wait until this turns brown pinch it off. Open it over your soil because tons of tiny balls will pop out. These are petunia seeds. Also if you look on the leaves of your plant you may notice theses all over them, this is how a petunia reproduces.
