Also question is, how do you get protea seeds?
Propagation by seed Harvest the seedbuds nine to 12 months after the plants have flowered – that is when the plants flower again. After the seed has been harvested and sorted, it must be stored in a cool, dry place until it is sown in autumn. The sowing time for proteas is from March to May.
Cuttings are best taken in early spring or early autumn and placed in a cutting mix of 75 per cent coarse sand and 25 per cent peat moss. The pots should be placed in a propagating bed with both heating and misting in full sun.
