    Wow. What a striking phrag! Great color and cute spots like freckles! Nice job, McJulie.

    This isn't the biggest of pearcei flowers, but as Smartie points out, it's got quite a pink flush. Most of the pearcei I've seen are straight greens, little or no pink.

    I'm curious in how species are judged. I know flower size and form is important. How much does color weigh in?

    That would be interesting to know, the one pearci I was tempted to buy was almost completely green. I loved that spring-like effect. Not that the pink is unattractive, I just have a soft spot for green flowers.
