Summer 2022 at the earliest. If the fruit was from selfing, give the cleaned seed a good squeeze to make sure it developed fully, else nothing will give a good result.

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.)?
