    Does anyone know the seed pod maturation time of Angraecum urschianum? Pollinated in March and it is still fully green.

    Four months isn't long for an Angraecoid. From Hillerman, 5-7 months is average with some in the 9 to 11 month category. I've never pollinated urschianum so have no personal experience.

    I ùade two seedpod of urschianum. one sown at 98 months, was still very green, but viable. other one harvested after it split, was one full year on the plant.
