Is it not? There's some kind of underground structure there, though I 
don't know botanically what sort. It's always grown with just the neck 
of the tuber (or whatever it is) and the deciduous foliage above ground 
for me, never as a caudiciform, so I just assumed it was within the 
mandate. But if it's not appropriate here then sorry, and I'll ask that 
any replies be sent to me personally.

It took a couple of years to settle in, then I found out the hard way the stems are quite brittle (Silver Linings Department - they root easily enough), but I finally had some flowers this year. They're small, but with a lot of daubing I have one seed capsule.

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.)?
