    Default Currently blooming slippers -Phrag Randy Macdonald and Paph godefroyae

    My Phrag Randy Macdonald is in bloom with a branching spike Its and vigorous grower that has grown into a nice clump from a single growth for me. I just divided it for a forum member and the plant still continued to spike.
    Phrag Randy Macdonald = Phrag Hanne Popow x Phrag Sedenii
    Phrag Hanne Popow = besseae x schlimii
    Phrag Sedenii = longifolium x schlimii


    Paph godefroyae is a small paph species with nicely tessellated leaves. Very compact and also has a dwarved bloom because of that.

    Randy's looking good. Mine's growing nicely; new growth is about 5" now. Sure hope the children will look just as good as daddy MacDonald.

    I have it in a plastic pot with loose sphag sitting in water. Actually the massive roots support the plant up in the pot and I just put small amounts of sphag to keep it moist. That way it gets adequate air even when sitting in water. I grow it underlights, though I moved it to my window when I saw the sheath.

    Beautiful, Fren; good growing! I love phrags, but they cringe and scream in fear when I'm around.
