Orchid Seed
« on: September 26, 2014, 12:50:54 PM »
Hey guys

I am looking for orchid seed or a fresh seed pod for sale or trade. I am a mycologist by trade so have experience in aseptic conditions. I am told it is very difficult, this is the reason I want to do it. I like a challenge.
I am going to try with a flower stem bud explant as this seems easier to start with and is available.

I've tried to buy seeds online with no success. I bought some from china but when they arrived they were definitely not orchid seeds.

PS. my favorite orchids are slipper orchids  :)

Whilst I've never tried growing orchids from seed ...it does sound like an exciting thing to do. So keep us informed on your progress.

Do not know if you had a look but they ususally sell some orchid seed on ebay
