Here is a pic of a Phrag I've had few a few years and have doubled the size of the growths. It has flowered once for me off the smaller growths but refuses to on the new ones. Its getting more light than before and much more healthy. The new growth leaf spans are 2 foot or more. I don't normally flower these plants till our winter or early spring. Any suggestions on getting it to flower this year ???
We had a Phrag Albopurpureum that did not bloom for 10 years and it was huge. Now, it seems to bloom for us once a year. What finally made the difference was light. I think the best solution is to give it even more light; As much as it can stand without burning. A little stress may make it realize it needs to reproduce. It looks so healthy and robust, it probably hasn't felt the need to bloom. It is a beautiful plant. Good luck.
