Orchids are not difficult to grow from seed, but they can take a long time to germinate. Sow the seeds just on the surface of moistened seed starting mix and lightly press them in. Cover the trays or pots with plastic wrap to help hold in moisture and place them in a warm place. The seeds will sprout in 90-365 days when kept at 65F-75F degrees.

Good luck with your new orchids!
