    Bought this plant in spike about 1 month a go.
    Flower is about 3 1/2" wide x 2 1/2" long , flower only been open less than 1 day so may grow a little.
    Colour is very close to what it looks in real life.
    Very happy with the colour and the form , i think i have been lucky.

    Phrags are very similar in culture to Paphs. They need similar light levels, etc. to the "strap leafed" Paphs, meaning the ones without patterned leaves. One thing that I have noticed is that they prefer a bit more water, in fact, I keep all of mine in pots that have a water reservoir at the bottom, and when I water, I don't empty the reservoir. Some Phrags may not need this treatment though.

    For me they are very easy , i grow them in s/h or recently in 9mm rock wool cubes with some sponge rock.Light levels are about the same as my species phals , i fertilize very lightly about 1/2 to 1/3 the strength of my general orchids(this is about 100 ppm for Phrags).
    Phrag kovachii needs slightly different treatment especially as young plants(i killed 1 a few years ago)but with better cultural information nowadays i will try again.

    Hi Steve.I may be mistaken but I think you may have bought this plant from me?? Phrags need to be kept very wet and to make sure the water never becomes stale. They need feeding very little but with the Akerns Rain Mix they can be fed more often (similar to MSU )..Not fussy about light but need slightly more than paphs. All phrags in my greenhouse are watered continually with cold tap water direct from an outside tap. I tried Paph kolokapingii on this method a couple of years ago and they developed roots over a period of time even in the wet soggy conditions. So there's more than one way to 'skin-a-cat'.

    I have one Paph, but its the mottled leaf kind. It's growing very happily with my Phals under lights and I think its starting a spike and a new fan! It's grown a whole fan since I bought it in flower last spring at an orchid show. I'm a little leary of plants that need a lot of water and humidity though, its dry here and our water is alkaline and full of minerals. It's not convenient for me to get any other water, unless the filter on the fridge is enough to clean it up some? I may have to just enjoy everyone else's Phrags.
