Talking A new quest...

Hello everyone,

I recently 'selfed' one of my NOIDs and so far (It's been 8 days as I pollinated it on the 7th of September), it seems to be working.
I want to eventually get these flasked and eventually get them to flower. Here are some photos:

The parent plant's flowers:



The developing seed pods:





You can see the difference in size between the unpollinated and pollinate flower stem.

Holatombola

Talking Update 1...

It's growing pretty well, even after I repotted it from orchid compost into coco husk chips...^_^

Photo update from today. So far, it's been 2 months and 19 days (80 days in total). You can see the pods have straightened up now! Does the development look normal?
