Phragmipedium Andean Fire (lindleyanum x besseae)

This is a really lovely and really red Phrag hybrid that's very similar to the classic hybrid Phrag. Memoria Dick Clemments. This is an easy to grow and bloom hybrid that's small-medium in stature. I divided this last fall, so it's still in recovery mode. The spike is actually manageable for the time being. This, like most Phrags, is a sequential bloomer, meaning it produces 1 - 3 flowers at a time, in sequence and over time it can produce 5 - 10 (or more) flowers per spike over a period of months. The spike tends to grow so tall that eventually it doesn't fit under the shelves.

I grow this one wet. I do my best to avoid letting it dry out and it grows year round. I keep a small amount of water in the saucer at all times. It does prefer very high quality water, and I typically use rain water for it. I feed lightly with each watering, except once or twice a month I'll flush the pot with water only to remove excess nutrients and minerals. I grow this indoors under lights, so it gets moderate temperatures and what I would call bright shade. The flower color is most intense during cooler temperatures, like most P. besseae hybrids.

Another gorgeous Phrag! It doesn't have 14 spikes like your Phrag pearcei, but the amazing color more than makes up for it, it's just stunning.

I got my first Phrag last fall, and am looking forward to the first spike.

Completely orchid obsessed and loving every minute of it....
