I have read that sugar cane does indeed seed. Though its planted mostly from cuttings. Where is there a trusted seed source for this? I mean I have heard stories of someone buying sugar cane seed to find out that it was really sorghum. It looks to me like sugar can seeds might be a lot smaller than sorghum seeds from photos.

I've never seen sugar cane seeds for sale anywhere. Thanks, Jonna for coming up with a source for the original poster.
