Tim, it's planted in a mix of diatomite and coconut chips with a little sponge rock thrown in. I water it twice a week, but it is not sitting in water. At least in my growing conditions, the caudatum types don't like to be always wet. Damp maybe but not wet. For lighting, in the summer, I've had it on my north-facing front porch where it gets morning sun until about 11 am and open shade the rest of the day. In the winter, my Phrags are all growing under T8 fluorescent lights in my basement.Do you grow the plant sitting in water or does it dry out? Could you please advise what sort of lighting it gets?
I imagine there might be some that do fine sitting in water, if they take after the longifolium parent. On the other hand, caudatum wouldn't like sitting in water. I think fellow member Leo said it best in a previous post, the long petaled phrags like water but they need to drain quickly.Do you grow the plant sitting in water or does it dry out?Thanks tim
I would think so as caudatum is a high light phrag, longifolium on the other hand is not but if it's BS & it's not blooming, then it's definitely worth a try!My grande gets sun all morning, infact til 1-1:30pm. There is a sunburn spot on one leaf otherwise it is medium green in color. Good Luck!Thanks Dot, Rose...
I've got three of this cross and one is sitting in water the other two are in a pot that just drains as usual. They are all in the same spot that gets morning light to about 9am though, so maybe I need to up the light.
