Hello to you all,
Is there anybody to sell bulbs or seeds from Pleione humilis?

Difficult to send from UK because of Brexit (would need Cites paperwork). Try Christian Schreiner -he had some for sale.

Hi Steve and Guus. No, you don't need CITES for orchid seeds, but there is some confusion about whole seed pods.

"The current annotation for Appendix-II Orchidaceae, Annotation #1, specifies that seeds are exempt from CITES controls, but it does not exempt seedpods (fruits)."

Invitro cultures/seedlings are also OK.

"Therefore it would be better to exempt all flasked seedlings of orchids from the requirements of the Convention.
 In the case of species listed in Appendix II or III, and hybrids thereof, this exemption was made possible with the
adoption of an amendment to Appendix II at the fifth meeting of the Conference of the Parties and of Resolution Conf.
6.18. T"

Fortunately, almost all  orchid species are Appendix II species except 7 specific species and the genera Phragmipediun and Paphiopedilum (Appendix I).

Hi Steve and Anders,
Thanks very much for the replies! And useful information.
Hope the CITES will be adapted, according to what (technical) developments are taking place in growing orchids in vitro. It would be good to grow and trade so many orchids in vitro that wild collecting is just useless.
