Has anyone collected and grown out seedlings of spineless chaya?

I've always grown it from cuttings.

I've had some volunteers which I think were from seeds though it's possible they came from random stem parts.

have 4-5 types right now.

Cnidoscolus aconitifolius cuttings are excellent.

One type is the one Dr. David Fairchild had at The Kampong, saved by fellow RFCI Miami members. Another from Larry Schokman, two more from around town, which both appear to have no stinging nettles.
