    I think it's all your fault that I am itching to grow some Phraggies!! They seem to have such rich colors and are just stunning!

    Like it? I love it. I find these phrag orchids outstanding. I love how long they bloom too.

    Phrags always have very strong color as compared to Paphs, very pretty.

    Not very big Kmac reaching only about 10" in height. I would consider it to be a small phrag.
    Thanks for asking,
