    brassias do not like being the male in breeding even amongst there own kind .It it therefore an adventure that has a 20% success rate.The pod will take at least 12 months for maturity.

    Put this way, if the flower fades a nd falls off then it didnt take.In saying that,I have learnt that you can not say that you have the pod until the pod is ripe .The reason I say that is ,That the plant can abort the seed pod at any time
