    Phragmipedium equadorense (pearcei) × Phragmipedium lindenii

    I haven't had much time to post photos of things as of late, but I've been wanting to post this one. I purchased this from Woodstream last year. It's using equadorense, which I believe is technically a form of pearcei making the hybrid name Coon Creek.

    I love the grassy foliage and how small this plant is. I've added a ruler to the photos for some scale, and then I did a gratuitous comparison shot with Phrag. Wossner Super Grande (largest) and Phragmipedium Mayling Nielsen (medium) since they're all in bloom now.

    The flowers aren't as pale as I was thinking they'd be, but for my taste, that is actually a good thing.

    It's a rather dignified bloom, don't you think?
    Not terribly showy, but very attractive with
    that lovely pouch and large dorsal.
