Propagating Asparagus Fern / FoxTail Fern from Seed

Ok,...all you Floridians are gonna throw a fit, because I know the Asapargus
Fern/FoxTail Fern is considered a noxious weed in your area...and because I
just spent a small fortune on two poor specimens shipped from your fine
State....and because now I'm going to ask you how to propagate them from the
little red berries.

So?...any recommendations on how to seed propagate them?  I read that seed
propagation is possible...I assume its from the berries.   Do I need to dry
them first?   What sort of success rate should I expect?

Thanks in advance for you help!
Floridians: please return jaw to closed position. :)

Thanks!

Just let the berries fall to the ground.  That's what we do, and as you said
in your first sentence...IT WORKS.
