Plantgasm - I love plants too much. By Derek Powazek.

I Think I Impregnated My Dendrobium

Back in March, I attempted to cross two Dendrobium that happened to be blooming at the same time. After a promising start, the pod fell off. Undaunted, I tried again, and this time it’s looking good.

Dendrobium Seed Pod

I pollenated the flower on 31 March, so it’s about 5 weeks old at this point. I have no idea how long small Dendrobium pods take to mature (the Phalaenopsis pod took about 9 months), but if it keeps going I may have another pod for flasking.
