I have another compact Phrag. to share with you all.
This is Phragmipedium Inca Rose. It is a cross of Phragmipedium besseae X Phrag. Pink Panther.
It is a petite plant growing in a 3 3/4" plastic pot. Base color of flower is cream. Dorsal suffused bright pink along outer edge, with a darker Rose pink flare apically. Petals slightly rolled but pleasingly so, dusted bright pink throughout. Pouch brushed darker pink centrally and towards tip. Rim veined darker pink cascading down internally.
Staminode bright yellow with white side tips.
Flower measures 5.2 cm. X 4.6 cm. and sits atop a 9 cm. Tall inflorescence. There is a second large bud forming so this will be a sequential bloomer.
I think it is very attractive.
Now how am I growing it? Well compared to the Paphs. It is closer to the tubes, 6" versus 9". They get a bit more water and fertilized once a month with Jack's 20-20-20. Foliage has become a rich, darker green.
Once I looked at the images I noticed that the flower is covered in a downy fuzz or pubescense.
