A mini-mini plant [less than 1 1/2" total] with up to 3 giant flowers [4"], grey green, flattened, verrucose roots and grayish green, spotted silver, elliptic or oblong leaves that are acutely bilobed apically, comes from Madagascar in the central highlands as well as Reunion on shrubs and trees in highland forests at elevations of 900 to 1500 meters and blooms in the spring and summer on a short inflorescence with a solitary large flower.
Germination Techniques: Botanists use two techniques to germinate orchid seeds. The first, symbiotic germination, is a complicated process that requires use of mycorrhizal fungi, as described above. The second, asymbiotic germination, involves germinating seeds in vitro, using agar, a jellylike substance that contains necessary nutrients and growth hormones. Asymbiotic germination, also known as flasking, is easier, quicker, and more reliable for growing orchids from seed at home.
Please be aware these seeds are dust like.
Price is for between 50/100 seeds
