Question:
Are there seeds on the Jack-in-the-pulpit? We do not want to dig ours up but would like to start some more plants for friends. Can we take the red seed pod and plant that?


Replies:
Yes, the red fruits contain seeds and can be planted in a suitable soil and environment. Jack-in-the-pulpit usually grows in shady woodlands with fairly rich soil.
