    Amazing, looks like the seedlings I managed to germinate also on the roots of my R. retusa.

    Well done Anuchit. I had the same thing happen to my Aerides odorata - they sort of germinated by themselves without any help from me. BTW the aerides were growing mounted on an old tree stump together with Rhy retusa and Den secundum

    How are you all germinating orchid seeds like that?? Just putting them on spagnum in another plants basket? Or is that moss? I have seed pods I could do this with soon...and would love to try it myself.
