    I don't know how to do this either. I did have a Bulbophyllum phalaenopsis that gave me 4 seed pods when it bloomed this past April, I did not pollinate so I guess the flies/bees did it. I had wanted to send to a orchid growing friend but they ended up turning into mush before they were ready to be pulled from the plant, maybe next time.
