Here it is -finally. I have been waiting for some months for this to come into bloom and now it is. It is branching and currently supports two flowers at the same time!!
Sorry about the poor picture quality -camera phone only.
Nice flava form, congratulations.
Beautiful phrag - I love the besseaes, but I only have hybrids - aren't the species tricky to grow? Do you grow it in S/H? I'm new to phrags and trying to work out the best care for them. Three of the 5 in bloom that I only brought home last week have dropped their blooms - poof! I thought I followed all the advice the rower gave me, but maybe I'm missing something - or I guess they could just be having a hissy-fit from being taken out of a greenhouse and moved to a nice, warm, humid, well-ventilated windowsill.... Your flava is so pretty - any advice?
Lovely and worth the wait on the blooms!
Okay - so maybe I should ignore them for a while and they'll get the hint?
I have taken another shot of it as the others weren't very clear unfortunately there is no black background but you can clearly see the windows now. The second flower is already larger than the previous one and it is still growing!!
Not a variety I see very often. Very nice colour!
