Sowing Laelia seed

Today was fun because I got to learn how to sow green pod. In these photos you can see me sowing a Laelia anceps seed pod. It was surprising to see how much seed came out of one pod!

First I put the seed pod in a jar of bleach to sterilise it, then I put it in sterile water to rinse the bleach off. Next I cut the end of the seed pod off and shook the seed into some jars of agar. These plants will be ready to come out of their jars in about two years time.
