Spiranthes seeds

Mom collected these Spiranthes seed pods for me at home this winter. Thank you Mom!! I found one source online that implies their symbiotic fungus may be widespread enough to be able to get them going in my mini prairie.
The seeds are so tiny! This is under the 1x dissecting scope. The big pods are visible in the phone camera photo above, but here you can see the dust speck sized seeds.
