with Mycoheterotrophic plants, but from my experience C. mertensiana has much denser inflorescence and is a far deeper magenta color. You had any luck on the eastside of Cascades with B. rex veris yet? We’ve come up dry for almost a month now… Any porcinial reports would be awesome at this point :)



What is the difference between this and C. maculata?
