    Default Phragmipedium lindenii UPDATE pic

    My Phrag. lindenii buds are now finally opening. It is the only naturally peloric slipper orchid without the pouches. Instead of the pouches the blooms have an extra long petal. This species is also known to self pollinate very easily. The plant is a first time bloomer with 4 buds. Here is the latest pic. No pouches!



    I'll post another when all the buds are open.

    Beautiful photograph as usual. Aren't you excited to see them fully open? I am! That is sure a different looking Phrag!

    Thanks, Heather! Yes, I'm very excited about these pouchless Phrags. It is very strange to see them without the "slippers". I have seen them in bloom before but first time on my plant in my care. Phrag lindenii is very closely related to Phrag wallisii.

    It looks it, except for that missing pouch of course!

    Beautiful photography as usual Peter....I have to say I would miss seeing the pouch! Still pretty though.

    Thank you, Gilda and it is odd to see a slipper orchid without the slippers! One of the wonders of nature!

    Like a trident raining down. There really are some unusual long-petalled phrags. The aforementioned lindenii and the very odd (and prohibitively expensive) exstaminodianum. One would think that missing a part (staminode) would produce a discount on the price?

    Hm, that one turned up not a thing (!) on google, care to explain, Jason? (BTW, none of your links ever work for me - which may be my mac user-ability, but thought I'd mention it.)

    I intentionally misspelled the species so you wouldn't feel compelled to get one, Heather. No, my latin is just rusty. It's really exstaminodium. Pictures are hard to come by, but I found a link to one. I'll just type in the link and a copy/paste job will hopefully work.

    It looks like a caudatum, smells like a caudatum, but is missing its staminode and costs about 25 times more...

    Pete, I think *you* need one of those, if only to give the rest of us a decent picture of it!

    Nice lindenii too, btw. I really want to see it completely open!
