I thought I would demonstrate some of size and shape differences between several species seed pods.
From top to bottom:
Phal. lindenii
Phal. pallens
Phal. cornu cervi var forma chattalada
Phal. fimbriata
Phal. amabillis var papuana

Time to go flask them up:)

Thanks for posting this. Can you perhaps add the time it took to reach harvest ?
I'm surprised at the relative size of the fimbriata pod.

[curmudgeon]Technically, they're "capsules," not "pods."[/curmudgeon]

It looks like these are all selfings, if I read the tags correctly. I'm glad to see you're in Canada! There's not a lot of sources for species and such, and I'm glad you're trying to fix that!

Only one is a selfing the pallens "mellow yellow". To be honest I'm not sure it counts as a selfing but I do not know what else to call it. They are from different plants but they are all keikis from the same mother plant, genetically identical as such I think selfing is appropriate.

The rest of the "capsules" (:D Ray) are of different plants. I try to keep at least a dozen of every species I can get my hands on, these would be seed crosses of the best of them.

That's even more exciting! It's such a shame that novelty phals and species can be so hard to get here in Canada! I really am glad you're doing what you're doing!

I agree. It's nice to see conservation in action.

Interesting to see the differing sizes and shapes.

Did someone say Phal seedlings?
We’ve been busy deflasking of late, mostly species and primaries. This breeding program has been three years in the making.

I need one of each, no joke. I'm very interested in the primary hybrids that you've made. I feel like you have a lot of uncommon ones in there.
