    Phrag Wossner Super Grande is the correct name for it.

    Someone was lazy and did not spell out the whole name, which is not good practice.

    BTW, i suggest changing the tag to longifolium x popowii. This is to avoid confusion.

    The species epithet warscewiczianum is a mess and now describes the plant previously called Phrag wallisii (lighter coloured pouch) This is because the herbarium specimen used to describe the dark coloured wars. was actually a wallisii.

    You may find more info somewhere via. google. This complex has confused people because of this.

    All Phrags are multiforal because they send more than one bloom. anywhere from 3 to 25 blooms.

    Multifloral may descibe a phrag that holds all of its blooms at the same time. Usually anything with cautdatum types (caudatum ,wallisii, powowii) in it tends to be multifloral. So your Wossner Super Grande is multifloral. But these terms are not applied to Phrags often because all phrags give many blooms, some don't hold them all at once.

    unifloral/multifloral is usually applied to paphs. Generally the mottle leaved paphs are unifloral. And green strap leaved ones are multifloral. but that is way to simple, looking at the breeding would tell you better

    Thanks for the great information, Fren.

    Byron, your Phrag will have many of its blooms open at the same time, but they will open over time, not on the same day or even week. They are long lasting.


    Cheers,
    BD
