    Smile Phrag Eric Young

    I bought this phrag Eric Young on March 8. It was not yet showing a spike but was close.

    It indeed did spike and here is the first flower to open. There is another bud. I don't know if there will be more after those 2.

    I agree these are trouble free. My phrags have been smitten with crown rot and I have lost some thirty plants but no problems with the EY's.

    Sorry to hear about the rot!

    I am quite happy with my EY and now have a second phrag in bloom, Olaf Gruss, and my third phrag (actually the first purchased but not in bloom) pearceii is doing well now. It has 3 new growths that are growing. One new growth (a 4th) was started before I received it and it has not grown in the 3 months I have had it. But now the other new growths are out and growing, I have less concern about the 4th growth. It has not declined in health. Maybe now the others are growing, it will too.
