Yes. Let them mature naturally on the plant. Collect (pick) the seeds when they are full and dry. Store in a dry place and protect from freezing over the winter. Plant directly into the ground in spring.

Nasturtium seeds are commonly used as a substitute for capers. However, I have seen at least one report that mentioned their toxicity.

No, but they do have a similar flavor when brined. I prefer to plant them. The flowers and leaves are edible and have a nice peppery flavor.

The nasturtium plant can be placed in an aquarium, but it most likely will not survive very long. This type of plant does not do well completely immersed in water.

I always thought capers were nasturtium seeds

After the plant is allowed to bolt (flower) you collect the seeds and plant them during the next growing season.
