Hi Eric,Yay besseae hybrids! What is the cross, if I may ask?
Hi Bob, I have cut the spike because it is a first bloom on a young plant, but I would say it was an average size for a phrag with its heritage, which is made up of 50% besseae, 37.5% schlimii, and the remainder fischer - in other words, a smaller phrag. As the plant matures, I hope for multiple blooming growths that retain that interesting color contrast, and maybe a little stronger shape to the petals, but I don’t see it ever getting to be a much larger flower. Best Regards, KateThat is for sure a beauty. If you don't mind me asking how large is that flower?
