    Terrestrial orchid Bletilla striata seeds

    Hi,

    Awhile back I obtained some mature plants from a house where an estate sale was being held. I kept a few, sent out a few in trade. Yesterday, I noticed that on one a seed pod had formed and matured and turned brown. It split open and appears to be have lots of seeds, small and thin. Some articles on the web say it is easy to sprout, and suggest it does not require the fungus that other orchids do to germinate and grow. I cannot say, but thought some of you might like to try. SASE would seem to be the way to go. Post if you are interested and leave me your email so I can give you the address. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...NOSFxxC3dMJnFw

    I'd love to give it a try also
    Thanx for offering these unusual seeds.
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    I have found an additional pod that is still green. One SASE is in. When the other three arrive I think I might slice the green one into four pieces so you all can try it both ways.
