Dot, on the Phragweb, there is a picture of Phrag Mem Neil Mitchell.
I was wondering if it was your plant/picture and if you flowered any more.
I remade the cross last year and have the seedlings in compots.

Yes, it is my plant. It is, in fact, blooming right now -- has been since February. The flower is not real big, but it has a nice shape and color, and certainly is a good bloomer.

Good luck with yours!

Thanks Dot, I have found only one other plant on the net and that was nice to. What size need the plants be to flower. ie, Do they follow the richteri or the lindleyanum in the main.
Also, which way was you cross made, which was the pod parent please.

Probably more like richteri. The longest leaf is about 15" long and about 1" wide. If I remember correctly, when I got it, it had one growth, and that is what bloomed.

I'm not sure which was the pod & pollen parents. But if you can trust the tag, the pod parent was richteri.
