    Default Phrag sedenii SPIKE!

    This poor phrag clearly wasn't listening when the orchid spirits at my house screamed 'this girl can't grow phrags'!!!

    This spike snuck up on me- just found it today! I've killed several phrags, have three left that just sort of seemed to limp along. I recently changed fertilizers and added a fan to this growing area. *shrug*

    It's in a south-east window in large bark mix with wet feet. I'll certainly post a picture of the bloom! (that's a phal equestris bud in the foreground).

    (my photography skills have clearly not improved during my absence from here! LOL)

    Congrats! Mine is in spike as well.
    It's a primary hybrid between Phrag. longifolium and Phrag. schlimii, so needs to be capitalized (Phrag Sedenii)

    older crosses like that had names that sounded like a species...RHS does not allow that any longer
