    That's incredible Bruce, how many seeds. As Tim said ... good news.

    The flower is also very beautiful and what your telling me about it: "Reports say that plants in a common area will all flower on the same day". A quirk of this beautiful plant

    I just went to the link you provided and read the info on this species. It only blooms for one day, and all the plants in the area bloom the same day?!? I imagine it would be extremely difficult to catch this one in bloom.

    That's beautiful! It looks like a cross between a Dendrobium and a reed-stem Epidendrum.
