A third bud is just about ready to pop too.
2010 Purchase from OL...
Sweet flower! That's a nice one.
I like it!!!!!
Very nice! Can't find one around here.
Oh that's a nice one.
very nice form and good looking presentation, thanks
I dont usually like green/brown phrags but..!!:drool: Can you give us a close-up of the pouch?
That's a beauty.
Very nice blooms!
I repeat: That's a nice one!
Very nice Joanne. I like the close ups.
Maybe you can share some culture tips. Mine stalled.
Does it sit in bowl of water? Or not?
Nice pouch action!
Yup, all my phrags, even my wallisii, sit in 1/2" of rain water or RO; changed out every week. Mini Grande grows in a light stand under two T-12's, flushed with water once a week, usually a "top-up" of water mid-way between waterings. I use 1/2 RO & 1/2 150 -300 ppm tap water in the winter; 1/2 Rain water & 1/2 same tap water in the spring & summer. Fertilize infrequently (when I remember that is) with Dyna-Gro Grow 7-9-5 and Dyna-Gro Bloom 3-12-6.
This one did not bloom in 2011; but like all my other phrags, had been plagued with thrips. I'm hoping we've turned that corner...only saw a single thrip during last watering...
Great one! Very good close up!!
This Mini Grande is wonderful! It's got great pouch markings. Nice!
Great pouch indeed!
Thanks for the close-up! There's a lot going on in there!!
