    Default Is this a Phrag. Paul Eugene Conroy ??

    Last night we had our very first orchid society meeting and we recieved a 50% discount coupon on orchids from our local garden center.

    So I finally bought the Phrag socerers apprentice I had been lusting after and I also bought this which is shown beneath:

    The label just said phrag. wallisii x longifolium does this make it a Phrag. Paul Eugene Conroy?

    Yes, I have to admit that I have fallen a bit in love with Phrags.
    I blame it on you and the others on this forum, you all keep showing those nice pics

    Gilda,
    the Phrag. Paul Eugene Conroy costs $51
    Phrag socerers apprentice costs $51

    Actually I think that the lady at the cash regisiter made a mistake, because I only paid $51 for both orchids while the coupon said 50% off on 1 orchid.
    But when I mentioned it she said that she had fixed it.
    And still she gave 50% discount on both plants so I've only paid for 1 plant

    I dedided not to feel guilty about it because I did mention the mistake to her.
    Well maybe she just likes me and decided to give me a brake...who knows

    Yes, it would be a PEC. Like a slight smaller Grande with the color shifted towards the pastels.
