So, I have a question regarding paph seed pods. I have a Paph 'Ma Belle' that had a seed pod on it when I bought the thing. How large do these seed pods get? It still appears to be close to the same size as when I bought it (and that was a few months ago). The old spike that it is on is still flexible and green, and the pod is now gradually browning on the end where the flower once was.
If the pod starts to have brown color, you should harvest it right away. I notice that the pod could burst really quickly once the color starts to change (or even when it is still green). If the pod bursts then all is lost. You can sow seeds from green pods with no problem.
