    When the berries turn red, they may be collected and planted.

    This slow growing wetland plant Is slow to reach maturity, I grew some that took 7 years to bloom from seed…

    Many thanks! I thought I was familiar with jack-in-the-pulpit, however, this is the first time I have seen the berry cluster! I appreciate the help.
