    Default Phrag Eric Young: Blooming Size?

    I have had my first Phrag... an Eric Young for about a year. It is in a three inch pot and has doubled in size, has three large growths and two growths just starting. The plant has a couple of leaves about 10" and overall height is approx. 8-9" or so. When might I hope to see a spike on this baby? Is it big enough yet? Thanks!

    light increases do help phrags bloom. Always my first recommendation. But give it patience. I suspect it might bloom soon as the cooler winter temps set in, or maybe in the spring when the sunlight increases. But phrags have no real bloom season Plant sizes vary from plant to plant, Eric Young can be fairly large.

    Thanks, Fren! I'll try to be more patient... orchids sure do teach patience!
