Growing from seed:
Epidendrum Green Hornet

This initial picture of the blooming plant were taken November 21, 2004. That is also the day of pollination.


This picture of the seed capsula developing was taken February 25, 2005.

This is the same plant as of July 16, 2005. The seeds are ripe, the capsulas are open and part of the seeds have fallen out.


These are the seed capsulas, you can easily see the yellow powder at the outside, these are the actual seeds.

By the way, if you click on the pictures you will get to the high resolution, full screen pictures :-)

The seed is a very fine, flower-like powder of slightly yellow to beige color. I will try to get some microscopic pictures of the seeds.
