Orchid seeds

Hello geeks, how hard is growing a viable orchid from a seed? Any advice? I have no idea how to do this. I do well with my orchids tho.

That depends on a number of items, are you going to try to flask the seeds yourself or use a lab to flask them (highly recommended)? It also depends on the orchids themselves. I tried my first hybrid & got a good turn out in flask but as they grew, they were not very vigorous and I eventually lost them all. Kinda put me off for awhile from orchids so I havent been on the site for some time. I documented the whole process if you look it up. It's highly educational and I will attempt it again in the future with better breeding stock. Click on the link on my signature it's call step by step.
