    Have a great one!

    I love Memoria Dick Clements - I think it's one of the Eric Young Foundation early P. besseae hybrids. As yours grows, it will eventually have at least 4 and I've seen up to 20 sequential blooms - that is, these phrags generally only have one bloom open at a time, but what a fabulous bloom!!!! Great growing.

    Thank you!

    I can't say what I do really but my phrags adore me! Since I got them they have been my pride and joy, every morning I look I have blooms and even new spikes. I actually start wondering what happens when the spike eventually dies out, is the plant growing leaves from that place again, a new spike or it just stops?

    Wish I could help you with that, Laura...this is one variety I have yet to acquire...I still don't know what the difference is between a paph and a phrag...(I do know phrags are more expensive and less widely available, which is why I tend to buy paphs...LOL)

    GORGEOUS bloom on that one!!!

    Every time I see one of these types of phrags, it makes me want to go out and buy one. Such a vibrant, pretty color! Is it as pretty in person as it is on the screen? I bet it's more pretty in person...which, of course, makes me want to go get one that much more. I know nothing about them, though, and I'd just end up getting addicted to yet another variety of orchid....and we all know how that turns out...

    You sound like the go-to person on phrag culture around here...new spikes and blooms every morning? That sounds like a reason to get one to me! If I give in to the urge I'll be getting in touch with you to figure out what to do with the new plant... he hee... and I'll just blame you when my husband gets mad at me for the damage to our bank account. How could I help myself when you've gone and posted such a beautiful picture? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!

    Post pics of your others, too, if you get a chance! I'd love to see some more pretty phrags.

    Way to go!
