My Nun orchid is this year full of seed pods. Is it possible to grow from seed? What should I do with the seed?

Plant Guides Answer:

The short answer is no.

Nun Orchid Seed Pods is where I explain why you probably wouldn't want to try to grow a nun orchid from seed.

Nun Orchid is a page with information about much easier ways of propagating your nun orchid.

Thanks Jane, for your question and for uploading a photo.
