Picked this one up from Ecuagenera in March (Thanks Kyle!) in spike. I love the pale color. I've always wanted a pale pink/whitish phrag. :) Also I'm amazed at how tiny and round the pouch opening is! It looks very cute IMO :)

It is so totally cute! What a delicate color too. :clap: I think I need one...:D
I was too chicken to buy anything from Ecuagenera at the show; everything was bare root and I didn't know what a lot of the plants were or what to do with them. A bit intimidating for this newbie. Wait until next year though :D

Yoyo jo, you should have asked, I would have been happy to answer any questions and found the perfect plant for you. I will be in Calgary next fall.

Jorch, I'll see you in Vancouver in a few days. I'll have some phrag species for sale. Real dalesandroi, among others. Thats a nice one, are you putting it in the Vancouver display? if not, can I use it for the Ecuagenera display, let me know!

Cool! I've pre-ordered a d'alesandroi, so fingers crossed it'll come? The only one I didn't pre-order is andrettae because.. well, it is quite expensive.
I'm thinking of putting this one on display, as well as the paph concolor var longipetalum and a phrag richteri IF I can arrange transportation (and depending on the flower conditions by Thursday morning). :confused: If I'm not putting it on display, for sure I can lend it to you. :)

Thanks everyone for the nice comments!

itz very cute ^^ i see some besseae in it. wat kind of crosses would produce white flowers anyways?
Phrag besseae x schlimii is xanthic anyway, additionally there are flavum besseae crosses and even an album schlimii. If you search thru the threads here you can see some light [white?] besseae crosses. start w/ St. Ouen Ice. Yay besseae hybrids! :D

Maybe it's just me but if I had the chance to get a couple! :drool:
It's funny, but besides the occasional besseae, the only thing I think to buy from Ecuagenera is Pleuros. :p
Kyle-If you see Mike, say 'hi' to him for me and all the Ecua guys, Thanx

You should get your dalesandroi. It would be great if I could borrow the plant for my display. I am bringing a few plants from winnipeg, but nothing that big. Let me know, or just show up and let me know.

Eric, you should be saying hi to mike for me. I haven't seen him in 2 years! We only cross paths in Ecuador! He does all the east shows, I do Canada and a bit in Europe.

Picked up another one from Kyle a week ago. Bought it because the then-faded flower was a very nice solid dark color. The bloom dropped shortly after, and the second bud bloom out was a much lighter color, with a uniform darker color on the back of the petals. Petals are rounder than the first Hanne Popow I posted. Hopefully the next bud will bloom better with deeper color after I put it in higher light.



The siblings. The most recent acquisition on the left:
