Default Sobralia Green pod timing... help

Does anyone know the green pod timing for Sobralia panamensis? I made a cross between the panamensis and Sobralia macrantha. I can't seem to find much info about the time taken for there pods to ripen. Parent plant is Sobralia panamensis Any information is much appreciated.

thanks

according to OrchidWiz, macrantha is 240-300 days. There is no info listed for panamensis.

I don't want to use the macrantha as the mother for the pod because this is the macrantha's first flowering and it's a small plant. Putting a pod on it will make it slow its growth and use its energy to develop the pod instead. The panamensis is well established plant and large.

the "proper" name for panamensis is sobralia decora. Temps should be 58-75 at night. Maybe you can get more cultural detail if you search under decora ? If you have a large plant, then you must be growing it well ?
Also try IOSPE for a bit more detail
