S458: Orchid Sex in Splash Spring 2017 (Apr. 29, 2017)
Let's talk about the birds and the bees—and the moths and the flies and sometimes, the humans. Whether through attractive scents, the lure of sweet nectar, or flat-out deception, orchids bamboozle or bewitch their pollinators into becoming their sexual accomplices. Learn the ins and outs of orchid reproduction: from the pollination and production of vanilla to the oddities of the orchid that fascinated Charles Darwin until his death. We'll wrap up the class with the chance for you to become an accomplice in orchid reproduction yourself by planting your own orchid seeds to take home! Millions of $$\textit{Bletilla striata}$$ seeds as well as everything you need to sprout them will be provided. No experience necessary (or expected)!
