    The blue one will not stay blue - blue color is due to a dye, typically injected into the plant. Most of these dyed plants eventually will bloom white.

    OK. So I was missing for a few months, and so I'm came back, with a quastion to a real orchids growers. This is the seed pod on my mini phalaenopsis orchid. It has little flowers, but they has a really wonderful grapes smell. I polinated the flower 5 or 4 months ago, I can't remember, and now this seed pod is this big. Is it ready or not? it is small, because the flower was very small, but still, is it ready?

    And this is a second spike, producing new flowers:

    And I have another orchid, that was polinated 4 months ago, and the seed pod is massive! I will post pictures of that soon. And I also want to say, that I did a lot of reading, and I bought professional germinating and growing media for orchids seeds. I will gonna to sterilize everything and sow the seeds in flasks. I am only 15 years old, but worth trying, I really expect it to germinate and sprout.

    I don't know that this question fits into this thread. If you want someone who knows this kind of thing to find you, you may want to re-post in the appropriate places. I think there is one specifically for germination and seeds.
