| Some one says, the reason of difficulty in
their germnation is some control materials on their seeds. So
in order to avoid this materials, many seeds in their unmatured.
But exactly, some of deta in some species shows the phenomenon,
it is not always in all cases of Paphiopedilums' seedling from
my experience. For example, in case of complex hybrids, we can
get much more young seedlings from the matured seeds than un
matured seeds. For the other hand, when we observe the embryo
in their seeds by a microscope、it is very easy to indentify that
there are not so many the matured and grown embryo in their seeds
and almost of all seeds don't have the matured embryo in Paphiopedilum.
In case od Phalenopusis and Cat, it will be similar to Paphiopedilum
that I mentiuoned. But their unmatured embryo will grow well
in artificial culture in flasks. The unmatured embryo of Pahiopedilum
will not be able to grow in flasks. This phenomenon will bring
the clear results that we are talking about Paphiopedilum. you
know. The problems in Paphiopedilum seedling is only the low
rate to germinate bacause they don't have so many seeds to be
matured and germinate and the seedlings will grow well as well
as other orchids' seedlings.
