pearcei = Richard William Pearce (ca. 1835 - 1868) English plant collector, first worked in a nursery in Plymouth, then from 1858 for James Veitch in Chile, Peru and 1859 - 66 in Bolivia, was sent again to South America in 1867 by another interested party in London to collect, but soon died there of yellow fever.

Terrestrial or lithophytic orchid, often near rivers and on boulders in rivers, at altitudes of 300-1800 metres.


Phragmipedium pearcei grows very densely with short, 2-3cm long rhizomes and should therefore be kept in bowls. The inflorescences are upright to overhanging and can produce 2-3 flowers in succession.
