I almost lost my Maria due to our horrible freeze and power outage last Feb. It on has one leaf left. But, now it has put on 3 new division. So, hopefully with care and luck, I can save it!

My QF Maria was always a great bloomer. It bloomed sequentially last year for over 3 months producing over 40 blooms on a spike that was over 30 inches. As I said, earlier, no blooms this year._DSC4358 Phrag. QF Maria.jpg_DSC4488 Phrag. QF Maria.jpg

With such a striking flower it would be very hard to cut it. However, you can cut it and
put it in a bud vase to save the plant.

The plant was doing great, even after all those blooms. It even survived 35 F!!!!!

this has to be one of the easiest orchids to keep happy,that I have ever cared for.Once upon a time,I looked after over 2000 individual orchids,none of them was as simple.

I have another,(Wanakee Sunset)which I still haven't figured out.Although it's a vigorous grower,it keeps blasting sheaths
