    Thanks, beautiful name. I'm learning one new thing. I will propagate the seeds into flask but that will be a wait of 3-4 months.

    Sorry to ask this here but you guys seem to know what you are talking about...
    I have a seed pod growing (since June 5) and am wondering when to propagate the seeds.
    Is that 3-4 moths I take it? I don't know what type of orchid it is exactly, I just know that its a Phal.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, since the last successful pollination, while waiting for the pod to ripe, i have the chance to show another new flower it produced.


    hi Nicole well done, take a front view photo of flower to show its colour and experienced grower would be able to tell the species/hybrid. The flower must have shrunk now but hope it's not too late.

    My phal. Bellina- another successful pollination, The previous lower pod that was crossed with phal.var alba. The later -top ones cross with another bellina plant.



    I realised that hand pollination is not always successful and it was a hit and missed. Is there a sure way? or my bad way of handling?
