Phragmipedium Inca Embers is blooming out in my greenhouse. Actually, its always blooming out in my greenhouse. Its a hybrid of Phrag. Andean Fire x Phrag. longifolium, registered in 1997. I got it as a seedling from Windy Hill about six years ago. Its one of the better Phrag. besseae type plants I own, with heavy, large 14cm (5.5 inch) flowers produced sequentially on branching stems that bloom for many months and new stems appear every few months. Its always grown and bloomed well for me, but even more since I've moved it into semi-hydroponics type culture. Its currently in a one-gallon deli container and PrimeAgra media, and it has a leaf span of about three feet and flowers stems as tall as three feet.
