    That's amazing... and to have been bought as a seedling only a year ago.. so is this a fairly small plant... (lol, just thought that anything compared to phragenstein would be a mini)...

    I think my fave part of it is the petals... esp the darker edge to it.. and the tips remind me of Paph philippinense..

    cheers

    Last year it was about a 16" leaf span seedling.It started 3 new growths & this is the biggest @ 30" , the other 2 seem to be growing quite quickly now.
    Flower is 6" long(including dorsal) & petals 7" long.
    I was surprised @ the leaf span , i though it was a lot smaller.Your correct it is dwarfed by Phragenstein & Phrag Noirmont

    Great color on those.
    Had you said before that you grow your Phrags in very high light?
