    Well, my orchids are mainly to add a splash of colour in my CPs, so I'm not sure I'm really enthused about butchering the flowers...

    Thanks though...
    Anymore information of creating babies asexually?

    Well, you can use stem propagation. Rather then give you an over-simplified and possibly inaccurate explanation (I haven't tried this, either), I'll point you to a couple of articles by people with real knowledge:

    http://www.orchidsource.com/GBStemPropagation.html

    http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/...ardening/68265

    Before you become completely discouraged, there's another method: inducing keikis. This is probably the only reasonable solution for the average hobbyist. Try this article:

    I've pollinated phals before.(just because I'm curious) It's actualy easy. On the front of the column is where the pollania are located, behind a little bit of tissue. There easily pulled off with some tweezers. They'll be attached to the tissue by a small glob of yellow glue. The "stigma"(its more like a little cave) is on the underside of the of the column. Remove the pollania from the tissue and transfer it into the cavity. If all goes well the cavity should "close" up over the next few days.

    Tristan - did you take the process beyond pollination? Did you do anything with the pods?

    Oh the pod is forming right now. I think it may be another month because they're still half the size of the pods I've seen online. I may try to TC them myself(if I have time a set-up a clean box) or I might send them off to a lab. I still haven't made up my mind.
