Growing my own cotton plants

These little things are seeds from the cotton plant (Gossypium herbaceum). I usually use cotton yarn for my crochet creations and I was wondering if I would be able to grow some cotton plants at home as a fun experiment. Who knows, the fibers may even be good enough as stuffing for crochet dolls or perhaps even to spin some basic yarn.
