Phragmipedium ainsworthii is a rare and striking species of orchid known for its large, showy flowers and conservation status. This orchid is endemic to Peru, where it grows in very limited and specific wet forest habitats at high elevations. The flowers of Phragmipedium ainsworthii are particularly notable for their size and the distinctive pink to red coloration, complemented by a long, pouch-like lip which is characteristic of the genus Phragmipedium. Due to its limited distribution and the specific environmental conditions it requires, this orchid is considered highly vulnerable and is protected under CITES to prevent its collection and trade from the wild. Cultivation in botanic gardens and by specialist growers under controlled conditions plays a crucial role in its conservation, aiming to preserve this unique species for future generations.
