sendenii var. Rosum 'Bern Crest'. I think I will have to say this is my favorite phrag. Will she give me 8 blooms at one time?????
Each time another flowers opens I take another picture. I now have 2 ,3, 4, 5, 6, and this one makes 7 at time. Three have already fallen off, one, last week, 1 today, and one I bumped off before I even got to take a picture of it. OUCH. I think it was the first bloom.
I have been watching and waiting for 8 blooms to open at one time. I took this pic yesterday with 7 open at once but this morning one fell off. Unless some of the other buds (there are many still to open) bloom at the same time, I don't think it will make 8. So far it has given me 9 flowers.
I now have 2 stems in bloom and another smaller stem with lots of buds not ready to open yet.
It is an 8 inch pot - - S/H with Hydroton. I grew this one under a 430 W HID lamp.
