    Default stanhopea x gongora

    This is the first cross I've made in the 8 years of orchid growing and it is stanhopea embreei x gongora chocoensis and it has formed a pod. Does any one know how long this should take to mature and how to store it so i can try and flask it my self.

    oooh sounds like a cool cross...

    did some googling and the cross is called Stangora.

    sorry but couldn't find out how long til the seedpod is ready for sowing.

    Good luck though!

    Stanhopea tigrina x Stanhopea inodora (oculata?) takes about 260 days for dryseed,so iIwould expect something similar

    I had counted Stanhopea grandiflora beginning from selfing till the seedpod burst into a powder is about 120 to 150 days. Bear in mine maturity for each seedpod depend on the location. For tropical country as I mentioned above and for temperate as mentioned by Murray. good luck.
