    The size of the actualy flower or plant? In another day or so, I can tell you the size of the full flower. The plant it self is rather large. There must be at least 5 growths on this plant. I had no idea where I was going to put it when I bought it, but I have a big bench now. I have all of my out of bloom plants on the bench , and blooming plants upstairs.

    The plant has at least 5 growth on it. As far as leaf span, I have *no* idea. I haven't taken that much trouble to find out. I will for you if you want to know.

    Thanks Traci, but Jmoney suggest I do some google search about Phaph venustum and I planned to do that tonigh after work. I will do a similar search about this beauty too ( forgot the name again !!! I'm hopeless with names).

    Thanks,

    Sedenii gets large. 20-30" LS at maturity, roughly. richteri is kind of variable. Most people tell me richteri gets large as well, in that same range, but I have a mature plant in spike that is staying about 12" in LS (not a first bloom seedling, but we'll see if it gets bigger down the road).

    This is my first phrag. They are incredibly easy to grow. As long as I keep it in stading water, it is happier than a clam!
