Default Re: Bromeliads - What you need to know!

I just read that bromeliads can make seeds and that you can grow them from seed. I had no idea! Is it from the spiky spend flower head in the cup when the flowers are spent? I just want to know, how does one cultivate bromeliad seeds? Do you need to let them mature, dry? Stay wet? How does one grow these seeds after they're collected? I'm googling more as I type but I think these questions would be great to answer in this thread.

This is not my video, but I found an informant video about growing neos from seed. They look easy enough but he states at the end that it takes about 5 years to get a fully grown plant. I don't mind that

I wanted to confirm something from one of the earliest posts now that I am starting to think about plants.

When a 5% bleach solution is referred to, this is not 5% hypochlorite bleach, but instead it is 50ml of 5% hypochlorite bleach in 1l of water, correct?
