    Finally!! I purchased this lovely from Seattle Orchids in 2015. My understanding of phrag culture has improved over the years. However I am still not sure why this took so long to reach blooming size/ start blooming. Hopefully it will start blooming more easily moving forward.

    Congratulations Darlene! I've tried these seedlings
    twice and failed miserably. That small bloom is
    soooo cute.

    Very nice.
    I’ve heard that they like warmer temperatures than other phrags,

    Mine are also very slow growing. I have plants from 3 different vendors. I think it might be an inherent trait.

    Congratulations on blooming it and keeping it alive.

    Nice looking phrag. I attempted to start a conversation with you and it wouldn't allow me to. I read earlier that you may have some phrags plants or seedling available for sale. Would love to talk to you about it.
