I've been wondering the same thing and would appreciate a note if you get 
any information.

I took care to pollinate each flower stalk from a different one when mine 
flowered a couple of months ago.  Soon they became covered with seed pods, 
which I left to themselves.  When the seeds were obviously gone from the 
stalks I removed them.

Evidently the seeds did very well left to themselves - I now have a dozen 
or two 3" A. Crispii scattered throughout the tank. :)

included an entire, mercifully small, digest.  Still getting used to a new
