I find these long petaled ones a little bit of a challenge in S/H. Hopefully it'll continue to grow okay for me and not die. Petals are two feet long. Stairway To Heaven is warscewiczianum x wallisii and it looks like it favors wallisii more to me.

It's beautiful and you did a great job growing it. I love the long petal slippers.

I grow all of my slippers in S/H with no problems. They seen to like it.

:clap: Beautiful Geff !! Did you get this at the WOC ? Is it in SH ?
Hi Gilda,

No I got this from Marilyn at Windy Hill about a year ago (through the mail). It is growing in S/H media but I don't water it as often as I do my besseae type phrags. To me all phrags are a little difficult to grow but the long petaled ones especially are.

Geff, I seem to have better luck letting these dry out some, too. I let the resevoir empty out and like you, water my others more frequently.

I love those! Looks great.

I've had it on my wish list for some time but no luck in finding one outside of US yet.
