    Default P. equestris 'yellow'

    I had a hard time taking a picture of these tiny (but charming) flowers. First bloom of the plant for me. The plant is pretty small, so I was surprised when it started spiking.

    Default Love it!

    I have one that I got in a 2" pot as a seedling early last Spring that has a 4" spike on it now. I love these little plants..

    (My equestris has a leaf span of no more than 3.5"!!)

    What a beauty! I just love the way the labellum looks like a lady with a skirt and arms forward!

    And congrats to you and Clint for getting these to flower... I can't even grow 'em...

    Good job on the species growing. Equestris can be tempermental. The plant will stay farely small. If grown correctly in a year or two you can have a hundred blooms.
