Few seeds is very doable in a plant propagation and/or breeding project. No seeds ever is problematic.
Thanks! I dug some up today. I am a novice at all this gardening stuff...I'm familiar with cutting potato roots where you have to have a few eyes on each piece, but no eyes on this root that i see. I just got finished trying to plant them in a tall vase because they are long. Only one plant had seeds and I am not sure how to harvest them and don't want to get seeds before they are ready.
Much easier to cut the root up into sections and plant shallow instead of in deep holes. Maybe its not that vital that i keep the greens alive and can just bury pieces on the root, but how long should each root section be?
Root sections could multiply the plant fast because the roots are long! (my hands sure are burning haha)
