Almost a year ago I cross-pollinated a Phalaenopsis orchid and I have been waiting for the pod to mature to attempt to grow Phalaenopsis from seed in vitro. The pods have finally ripened and I have started seeds using both the dry seed and green pod method. There is a very strong possibility of contamination when doing this at home, however, that said, it is an interesting project to try. All processes must be carried out under sterile conditions. The seeds were deposited on the sterile media using a syringe, three drops per flask. Each pod contains millions of tiny seeds, but in nature, very few find suitable conditions in which to grow so the plant needs to produce millions of seeds.
