anyone know of a lab for seed pods to be sent to?

I hv a few plants that are developing seed pods. I hv tried googling to find a place to send them to for germination but hvn't had any luck. This is the first time I hv tried polinating my orchids. Does anyone hv any suggestions on a website that lists different labs? Or does anyone know of a reputable lab? I really hv know idea what to look for!

I get flasks from troymeyers.com...you might take a look at that website. I know others have been looking into sending for germination...they should be able to give you more names....good luck

i know of a place in south Africa that willing to do it, but that’s probably a bit to far for you.

If you dont want to put up the cash for far away labs, take a look at the "poor man flasking" threads. Some good, inexpensive ideas in those posts.

Meyers will apparently flask hybrids, you just need to pay them to do it. According to their site, each batch of seed they sow for you will cost a minimum of $121.50 + P&H for 3 flasks, or $25 with $16 credit for future flasks if your seed fails to germinate.
