Starting Yucca from Seed

I have had a yucca plant for many years. It finally bloomed this past summer. It formed pods full of seeds. Can I start new plants from these? If so how?

Remove the seeds from the pods and store them in a cool dark place for the remainder of the winter. You need to start the planting process early. It takes these seeds 30 to 35 days to germinate. Start the seeds indoors in early March. Use a sterile soilless potting or seed starter mix. Keep the soil slightly moist and about 55 degrees. Once the seeds sprout place the young seedlings under grow lights or in a bright sunny window. Plants propagated by seed take 4 or 5 years to flower.
