Picked up from The Orchid Inn, a year ago in January 2023. I’m not super excited about the jagged edges on the bottom of the petals.. I moved my last Fritz on because I couldn’t get away from that. It’s also not the biggest. But I do like the darker color, happy in some ways to get away from the pink. I’m into darker shades these days, maybe it’s the years of growing kovachii hybrids.

It has a few more buds emerging, I think I'll see how they bloom out and give it another cycle. What do you think? I’ve seen some excellent Fritz’s out there. Maybe I’ll hang on until I procure another lotto ticket.

Did you grab any of these when Sam sold his remaining plants?
Probably the same cross. I took about 12. They weren't growing very well when I got them and they are still recovering. Might have one in spike but it hasn't been the best year of phrag growing for me. Took me until mid summer to figure out my chemistry was all wrong.

Gorgeous flower, love the color and beautiful well grown plant! Where did you purchase that pot?

Rainmix is a copy of MSU, and both can induce very weird things in orchids, chlorosis, etc....
