    This is another first bloom seedling from Woodstream.

    The cross is Phrag Sunset Glow (4) x dalessandroi. Since dalessandroi is part of besseae by some sources, I am guessing this cross is Phrag Cahaba Glow.

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

    It's gorgeous! BTW Cribb classifies P. dalessandroi as its own separate species, and most of us tend to follow along with his interpretation of the species.

    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.

    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.

    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
