This is my favorite Phrag species and perhaps my favorite orchid that I currently own. It's very rewarding to grow.

Thanks for your interest!

Nice. How was it grown? :)
It was grown in clay pellets in a deep pot that has drainage holes only on the sides, about an inch above the bottom, so that the ends of the roots are always submerged in water. It is watered every few days or as the upper part of the pot dries. Only pure water is used, with very dilute balanced fertilizer quite frequently. It grows in low light and intermediate temperatures.
