    I think it's phrag popowii.
    Petals are 30 inches long , and the dark color is divine ! Small growing. What's your thoughts. 20190511_163358.jpg 20190511_162146.jpg

    Sounds about right, though the correct name is Phrag. humboldtii as far as I'm aware. Small growing, full staminode, and dark flowers is pretty indicative of this species. It may have been acquired / named back before all the naming and renaming and rerenaming of the caudatum complex, which would explain the outdated tag.

    roll going. I look forward to your posts and
    photos.

    Wow! That is a wonderful Phrag!
    Watching your photos it is a pity I'm not more into Phrags, I only have one tiny caudatum gig.

    Very nice stunning bloom, I would agree it looks more like humboldtii from the color
