Thanks, Tim.

So, for a plant which grows on a northern hemisphere schedule (leafs out 
in March-April) and is making a seed pod now, the right time would be? 
Summer or fall of 2022? Or wait until spring of 2023?

>>> Internet comments are consistent in using words like "erratic" and "difficult" about germination, but then range from "most will germinate ... eventually" to "sow in vitro". I can do in vitro if it's necessary, or more accurately my wife, who flasks all our orchid seed, can, but ... does anyone know if it really is? And if so, have any advice on the protocols (seed sterilization, medium, nutrient levels, etc. etc.)?
