Just a single mama of 4, a teacher of many, a photographer, an artist, a learner of life and trying to find my way. Flowers bring me a simple peace.

A friend sent me these seeds. I have never grown orchids before, so happy to take any tips you might have. Also, worth noting that I’m not sure where she ordered them from...so there’s a possibility that they came from Wish. Especially since it looks like there’s way more than 20 seeds in there. LOL 😝 #nakedmanorchid #orchid #new #seeds #advice #orchidhelp

This bell farm is on so many sites like Amazon wish etc. Be very leery and don't expect much from the seeds. Plant them up in a single pot just in case its def not what expected. Also Google the plant and seed to see if they match up and you will know what seedling and other information ahead of time as you grow this. I cross my fingers these are legit and grow well for you

That’s what I suspect too, @cyndi. Those seeds are so tiny...

Never hurts to try tho. Just be very careful in case it's an invasive plant .. keep us up to date so we can all pitch in on I'd if it turns out not to be what its supposed to be. If we find out it's a bad plant you will need to burn it. This is all just a heads up for that just in case situation. I do wish you best and hope ots a good plant lol

I tried growing monkey orchids from seed but nothing grew so I hope you have better luck.

Check into that before planting, I just watched a news story this morning about seeds from China. They said ppl are mysteriously getting them and they are investigating whether these are seeds that could be noxious weeds or something that would crowd out native species. Said not to open or plant but to report them. Maybe ask your friend about where she got it and look into it.
