    So... The flowers look like they may bloom any of these days, so I present you:
    My evil plant to collect the seeds:


    Do you think it'll work?
    What media do you reckon will do best?
    I was thinking pure peat+distilled water...

    Seems a lot of overkill.

    Why not just wait till the pods dry
    & then grab them & squish them onto a piece of paper
    blow away the chaff/dry pod portions & wrap up or plant whats left?

    Simple!

    Been done that way for years.
    Not much seed is dropped before then anyway,
    but it is all real small,
    so perhaps some close-up pics will reveal
    the actual style of pod you are so interested in.

    I am not sure what the worries are?
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Forget it!
    Forget it all!
    Tragedy fell upon my poor D. burmanii... The other day my mom let the pot fall while doing God knows what...
    She just grabbed all the substrate and placed it back pretending nothing had happened... I realized when I saw that she had actually burried the plant itself... Only the flower stalk was visible...
    I carefully took it out but then noticed that the flower stalk had a slice near the first flower... Today the inflorescence had lost turgency and bent completely...
    I cut the inflorescence and placed it in water... With some luck, some of the flowers will open...
    I cut and planted the stalk next to the plant to see if it makes roots (I read that this particular plant can do that)...
    I hope that the plant survives it's earthly plogée and lives without having to sustain the flowers...

    Dunno how that helps...
    I don't think I can harvest seeds from an unopened flower...
    Polination never occured, pods (that is, fruit) did not grew, seeds were not formed...
