When to start inside: Not recommended; does not transplant well.

Harvesting: Foliage can be harvested any time. Seeds should be harvested after they begin to turn brown and when the outer coat cracks, but before they drop off the plant and scatter. Cut stem and place in a brown paper sack to collect the seeds. Rubbing the seeds will cause the outer shell to drop off.
