    I wish this whole process didn't take so long...I could find great educational reasons to do this in my biology classroom...but sophomores are SO impatient. They are very much into instant gratification!

    *sigh*

    Oh well

    If you can get pods somewhere it will take only six months, not too bad. After sowing a month you can see many tiny green dots on the medium; after about 2 months tiny dots become tiny plantlets. You don't need to do anything else like water, add fertilizer, kill insects etc.... You just watch them grow, everyday like I do, hihihi. Next time after I sow I only keep an eye on them for the first week to make sure that there no contamination, that's it. Only look at them every 2 weeks or a month and we will see them grow really fast.

    Some are actually fairly quick to germinate. From what I understand, Disa can be quick to germinate and can to get blooming size within a reasonable amount of time (reasonable of course is subjective). You may want to research a little if that is something you would like to do.
