    This Phrag was collected in the wild by a friend.
    Recently we visited the place to see how this Phrag lives in situ. All plants were growing over rocks receiving lots of pure water. 20200210_180447.jpg 20200210_175107.jpg 20200202_114003.jpg 20200202_114109.jpg

    Beautiful. Is that some sort of moss that they are growing in on the rock substrate?

    It appears it's growing on rock that is washed with
    rain on a regular basis. I assume the drainage is
    excellent. Are the roots growing into the moss?

    The roots are heavely attached into cracks. This rock is in the middle of a creek. The plants receive lots of water, some time flooded.

    Nice one! There are lots of seedpods on the plants. That's nice to see.
