    I browse Frosch's Cypripedium site several times a week. I just realized that he has photos of Cypripedium micranthum. When Cribb published his Cyp monograph, this species was known from only a couple collections that happened decades ago. This may just be my new favorite Cyp!

    As I look around more I see that it has begun being cultivated... Hopefully viable seed will be produced and this rare species will forever be saved.

    I love the dorsal. It looks like it just went through hair plug surgery.

    That's a nice plant! There are a few folks beginning to have viable seedlings. Hopefully it will become established in the hobby. I like the complex leaf organs that make up the "red spots." Some of my second year lichiangense, a close relative, have a few now.

    Easily one of my favorite Cyps!

    It always reminds me of one of those Chinese Crested Hairless dogs.

    ...and a great site!

    That Cyp. has "Don't mess with me!" written all over it.
