    Pleurothallis cypripedioides is correct. There are roughly 1000 different Pleurothallis species.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Is this thing a highland or lowland? I'm assuming highland as most of the rarer and harder to grow orchids are highland/mountainous species.

    Lowland from Ecuador between 300 and 1000 meters. Available at www.andysorchids.com The key to growing pleurothallids is to keep them moist.

    Took close to three years but I finally got my 100th post,

    That is a lovely, interesting flower. It reminds me of a fig torn open. Figs...yummy! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow...thanks for the link Dyflam. The flowers are so variable. I see a lot on that page I'd love to have.
