Has anyone had success with starting these orchids from seed? I  
rashly got some from NARGS this year, and now find that the fungus  
most often mentioned as associating with this orchid does not grow on  
a local species of Goodyera (G. oblongifolia), though it does in  
Europe, on other species in the same genus. I'm planning to gather  
some soil around local Goodyera plants anyway, as mycologists will  
tell you that the distribution of fungi is really the distribution of  
where mycologists have collected fungi.
So, before I kill this seed off, I would like to hear from others  
about germination methods for success. Before you mention it, yes, I  
did read about germinating Dactylorhiza seeds in troughs where it  
already grows, on the SRGC site.
in the PNW, where we've had sun all week, fantastic.
