My goodness, it does glow! If that isn't the name,
it should be. Gorgeous flower.

Nice, I like how red it is. How is rock wool culture working out for you?

Thanks all!

Overall the rockwool is performing well. It can be difficult to strike the right balance for keeping it moist, but not too wet. I typically grow my Phrags in saucers of water. This works great for the bark based mixes but can be too much for the rockwool mix, especially the for the pots not in the immediate path of the fan. I have seen great growth with the rockwool and will continue to tweak my growing routines to get the best out of it. Its definitely worth a try.

Yay besseae v. dalessandroi hybrids! Thanks for sharing. Your growing area is starting to look crowded. :p
Ha! You have no idea how right you are. If I could only remember that over show season and keep my hands (and money) in my pockets. Doubtful. Hopefully I can do some clearly out come spring/summer.

Are those little armeniacums in the photo as well? How’re they doing?
Close. That is a basket of Fumi's Delight, which is growing well. It just is not showing signs of blooming. I think it's been 2 years since I have seen it bloom... sigh
