    Default Phragenstein & me.

    As promised a piccie of me & Phragenstein(Phrag Sorcerers Apprentice) & me in the new g/h.
    Spike is 80" high(i,m just over 6 foot) & has had 70 flowers since Sept'04.
    You can see the new spike & i,ve counted a total of 9 growths(it had 3 last August).
    The side branches have started to dry up now so i,ll cut them off.

    Wow, Steve!

    You don't look like a diminutive kind of guy, but next to that plant...well...you're petite!

    So, where did you buy it? No! No, I didn't really ask that...BAD Julie! Bad!

    Tim, Steve wouldn't need to build another greenhouse, he just needs to build a church steeple onto the existing GH.

    Yes 9 growths Louis.
    The new spiking growth has 2 growths about 8" high , new spike is 33" high so it,s growing about 1" a day like the big spike did before it flowered.
    Multi-growth Phrags are expensive in the UK & Phragenstein cost me £45(about $80 USD) , smaller single growth plants are about 1/2 this amount.
    2 of the growths are nearly as big as the new flowering growth so these should spike in the Fall.
    The new growths are all sitting nicely just under the s/h media(no climbing) which makes me happy , originally when i first bought Phragenstein the big new growth was about 2" above the medium(rockwool) & i had to partially bury the oldest growth(the oldest growth is still OK & has produced a new growth).
