    Great photos, Paul! Very tempted to try a few of these. Would they eat ground up hamburger?

    Phrag. besseae - Peruvian vs Ecuadorean flower color.

    The Peruvian type is a slower grower than the Ecuadorean - at least under our conditions. Next Phrag. besseae repotting season, I'm going to try growing the Peruvian type in a tray.

    Phrag. besseae - Peruvian vs Ecuadorean flower color.

    Phrag. d'alessandroi 'DD#2'

    Our Phrag. d'alessandrois - adults or seedlings-don't sit in water but are watered twice a week. Our Phrag. besseae are watered every other day, or sit in water depending upon the size and time of year.

    Same formula we've used for many years, Eric. - 8 parts Sequoia seedling bark (1/8-1/4" particle size) - 1 part coarse perlite (1/8-1/4" particle size) - 1 -part #3 size charcoal - 1 - part chopped NZ sphagnum moss (1-2" length) We use these particle sizes because the mix promotes good...
