    Someone on here several years ago said it was Grande var microchilum. I've had it for years. It sulked on me and didn't bloom after last repotting. Maybe why I'm not fond of it

    One of my favourite I struggle to bloom my two plants. Well they've never bloomed they grow very well just never flower.

    I like it fine, but I know the feeling of waiting
    patiently for often years to see a flower and
    been disappointed. You've had so many gorgeous
    Phrags. lately that you just have to "suck it up"
    and brag some more.
