Nice photos
What orchid is this?
What is the length of time they need to mature as green pods?

I looked up Gentle Moments in the RHS registry and found -
Cattleya Gentle Moment = Cattleya labiata X Cattleya Claesiana
C. Claesiana = C. intermedia X C. loddigesii

The Slc. Tangerine Jewel 'Southern Cross' 4N X Blc. Erin Kobayahsi 'Lahina Gold' must be the yellow Catt hybrid ?

These are beauties

Depending on the genus, green 'pod' sowing is usually most successful at about 90% maturity. Some slippers are better taken a little earlier, but ~90% should be good for these varieties. Be patient, it takes a while.

Wow that is really cool! I have tried pollinating my orchids but nothing seems to be working. The flowers just start to barely close and then fall off, I am so frustrated! I don't understand what I am doing wrong, and I have even been doing some reading so I have a basic understanding of all the parts and what is supposed to go where! I can only hope someday I will have the same results as you! Great job!

Green pod is somehow easier than dry seed, but you have only one shot at one seed pod. Dry seed gives you the second (or third chance ...) if needed. If this is your first flasking, I suggest you to wait a bit more and try the dry seed first.

Green pods are much easier to sterilize but as pippin said you have to use them all at once. The embryos from green pods usually don't store well whereas fully ripened capsules with dried seeds can be refrigerated for future sowings. For green pods the minimum is 60% maturity but not all the seeds will have viable embryos(nor will most mature ones). There are pro's and cons to each method but good luck with your adventures!

P.S. Self crossing can sometimes weaken the progeny. Most plants with a label that states X SELF are made from 2 identical plants taking endosperm from one plant and placing on the stigma of the 2nd plant and vica~versa
