Hi Dot
I have a red Beauport that I got from Chuck & its a 4N. This one came from Carter & Holmes off of Ebay & its a 4N but it is so much larger than the red one. Its more yellow than orange. Orchids Limited has the same plant with the same parents. I am thinking about crossing it whith my B LeAnn.

That should be an interesting cross, Jonathan. It should have a lot of color variation.

Here's my Beauport for comparison -- Mine's from Fox Valley:

Carter & Holmes is where I got the plant. As for easy to grow I think all Phrag. Hybrids are easy. Give them good water about 80-100 ppm Nitrogen I use MSU, Bright light & a small fan blowing on them thats all I do.

I'll be surprised if he has any of these now -- I've had this plant for about 4 years, and it has bloomed every year for me.

But I'm having a senior moment -- what is ns?
