Obviously, the flasking process is MUCH better, but I have about 30 or so that have made it so far. We'll see what happens! The first pic is of a ball-point pen next to it so you can get perspective.
What did you sow your seeds on. I have a few dozen Bletilla in my landscaping and I just let the seed pods burst and let winter do it's thing. I can sow them on agar, but I've not been interested in doing it yet. I am interested however top learn what you did. Maybe I'll give it a go. I have about a half dozen pods out there at least.


BTW - its been a few months since you started this thread. How are they doing?
