Last May, I posted a picture of the flower I didn't want to see, on my Strobilanthes gossypinus. Didn't want, because this plant is said to die after flowering. Now the flowers are finished, and there is no green left on the plant, its leaves have all gone brown.  It doesn't look like something that will grow again:

However, if you look closely at some of the spent flower heads, there are hard, chestnut-coloured things which look like they might be seeds:

The next challenge will be working out how to get them growing.
