At last again an orchid from Herrenhausen Gardens.
The more plump Lady's slipper orchids are more my kind of taste. And, if you are lucky, it is possibly to find and see some in Europe too. Of course they are under protection and there is no way I would take one out of its natural habitat. I hope you wouldn’t do it eiter! As always, I'm not sure, if it is the right name, but it could be Mexipedium xerophyticum. If I'm right about the name, it would be a very "young" orchid, because it is known since 1988.
At least I learned from this picture something very important: Take more than one picture of such rarities and watch out for the light. Since the "orchid disaster", which I described earlier, I have a white sheet of paper in my bag to use it as a portable and cheap "diy" reflector.
If you are interested in orchids and want to know, how to care for them, please read - well illustrated with lot of pictures – instructions by ANDI.
