    Default Vanda (Neostylis) Capsule Maturation Time???

    I selfed a Vanda (Neostylis) Lou Sneary 'Blue Bird' in October. A capsule has developed and seems to be growing well.
    I mainly did it to practice my sterile lab techniques. Just wondering about the approximate time for maturation. I do want to sow it green.

    I am no expert on this. I have seen pods maturing about 3-4 months. Slight browning and ripening of the seed pod would be the indicator that it is ready to be dispersed.

    Thanks. The other info I'm getting is in line with this...somewhere between 3-6 months. Big window. I'm going to get it done this week.
