    Default I believe I can fly!!!

    Here is bud #2 on Phrag Giganteum about to fully open. Interesting how the petals hang up in the sepals and bend outward before they are released to hang free and elongate.

    I'll post a photo of all three blooms and the whole in a few days. So far two blooms are primo and the third bud is about to open. The petals grow about 1 inch per day. The petals on the first blooms are just over 13" long! This is a FAST grower for me indoors!
