    don't know but I searched and couldn't find anything either. How often do you get there? If frequently you can just watch for signs of maturation. Possibly contact someone like Troy Meyers and see if he would know

    King if I'm using green seed pod to sow usually 4 months is more than enough especially for Phalaenopsis, for Rudofiella species I noticed almost 6 to & 8 months, this miniature maybe between 4 to 5 months in nature as a result due to changes in climate.

    thank you very much everyone...i now have 3 flasks off seedlings from the same pod .........it took 110 days to change colour...so i harvested it...some of the plants are now a centimetre in length...Troy Meyers was very helpful with a guidline of 153 days but since my climate is different i had to monitor it daily...the plants are alive on their original twig and doing well and flowering
