The seeds of Boschniakia are very small. They are greatly enlarged in this photograph, which shows that the seed surface consists of interlocking polygonal ridges. This structural feature probably helps them in dispersing, perhaps in wind, but there has been no study done on how Boschniakia disperses or how these seeds would behave in a current of air.
