    Unhappy

    Hey, has anyone ever had success in germinating orchid seed without the use of TC?

    I'm going to guess (hopefully) that terrestrial orchids are easier to germinate outside of TC than epiphytic. I'm going to be receiving a Bletilla Striata seed pod soon, just wondering if anyone has any tips for getting a plant or two from it.

    I wish that was how it worked, but unfortunately, it is a natural bacteria or fungi (mike) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] Supposedly people are working on ways of isolating the fungi for the general public!

    Vertigo I think you will soon find once you have Bletilla striata, you will never be rid of it.
    It is self fertile so no need to bother with pollenating. In the green house these plants are pests, they grow fast and can crowd out other slower growing plants.
