Term Definition
seed

Orchid seeds are by far the smallest in the flowering plant kingdom but to compensate for this, they are produced in vast quantities. For example, Dactylorhiza maculata each capsule contains about 6,200 seeds. Cymbidium has 1,500,000, Maxillaria about 1,700,000 and Cattleya up to 5 million seeds per capsule.
