Seed pods of Paphiopedilum armeniacum and Paph. micranthum pollinated by armeniacum. Seed pods are about 5 cm long after 3.5 month

I am also very interested. Did you wait for the pods to reach full maturity and split on their own?

I harvested 7 months after pollination, just before capsule opened by itself.

Substrate is pine bark with 20% Akadama with a moss layer on top

Yes I think so also. We tested a lot of different media. My be we had a problem with bleaching the seeds, which was not long enough.
