Phragmipedium schlimii var. fischeri, (Braem & Mohr) Gruss


fischeri = Jerry FISCHER, owner of the American orchid nursery Orchids Ltd, imported a large quantity of Phragmipedium schlimii from Ecuador. Already when receiving the plants, some of them attracted attention because of their different growth compared to Phragmipedium schlimii. When one of the imported plants flowered for the first time, he immediately realised that this could not be Phragmipedium schlimii and sent material for a description of the new species to Germany.
