Bought these seeds online... Male
Default Bought these seeds online...

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to share my last experience regarding seeds I bought online.
I bought this...
Wholesale Product Snapshot Product name is 5 Colors Moth Orchid Butterfly Orchid Flower Seeds Phalaenopsis amabilis 10pcs/color 50 pcs/lot Free shipping
but received the seeds shown in the photo attached.
I've grown Phals from seed successfully, and the seeds I used (from my own pods) are nothing like these seeds.
Has anyone bought from this site/store?
Can anyone tell what these seeds are?

Cheers,
Esteban

Yeah...

I'd ask for a refund asap.

Those are definitely not orchid seeds. All orchid seeds are so small, you'd need a microscope to see any kind of details to them.

I don't know what kind of seeds they are, but they are for certain not orchid seeds.

Definately not orchid seeds.
Looking at the link, I'd take advantage of the payment terms cause you got took. Sorry

Yup, I'll have to do that.

Just be advised, DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER.

Cheers,

It is possible that you have bought seeds of Bauhinia which is also known as the Orchid Tree. As already mentioned they are not orchids.

They could also be from the orchid cactus, which is also a beautiful plant but definitely not an actual orchid.

Well, in their website they specify Phalaenopsis Amabilis.

I've grown Phals successfully from seed so, I knew right away those were not the right seeds.

I just wanted to warn you guys NOT to buy from them.
