Good luck, Jenn!
It's amazing how these things ever exist in nature with the number of obstacles and stipulations in order to germinate...and yet they're the most common and extensive family of flowering plants on Earth. Something just doesn't add up.
My husband's reaction to how they spread their seed was, "Well that seems like a completely stupid and unreliable way to procreate. Dumb plants!" Of course, he has no appreciation for the subtleties that leave us "orchid people" awestruck. Orchids' procreation method totally impresses me! I'm like...oh, yeah...you GO you crazy plants! Do your thing! To me, orchids are, quite simply, miracles of nature.
And if I can recreate that in my home, I'll feel like I've taken part in some small miracle too! Thanks for the encouragement!
