    Cool Phrag pearci

    I bought this in February. It is my first phrag. It was not in bloom but sold as blooming size. I moved it into s/h in March and it did better. Then after I opened the new 50 gallon orchidarium, I moved it into it. It took off. The browning of leaf tips has stopped and now there are a bunch of new growths, few new roots yet though. And one fan has now flowered. This orchid does not have pb's.

    IOSPE says it is a successive bloomer, so this is the first of a number of flowers. I am very pleased with its look.

    The vendor did not give any lineage details.

    Very lovely. What kind of light is it getting in your orchidarium? I worry about the leaf span and spike height of a phrag. My setup is a 50 gallon tank also though so I might have to reconsider.
