    Default Dartmouth Orchids 2

    Dartmouth boasts its own Phragenstein. (Also a Phrag. Sorcerer's Apprentice.) We didn't count the number of past blooms. I think Steve's wins, but who can be a loser when you're this colossal? Note the side branches. Lisa said those developed later than the primary spike...er...telephone pole...maybe, radio tower.

    Phrag. Evy Finegan is (Phrag. Grande x Pharg. caricinum). Lisa's justly proud of this beauty.

    And who couldn't fall in love with the diminutive cutie, Phrag. schlimii?

    Interestingly, she grows all her Phrags. (potted in moss, I believe) set directly in trays of water - except any with caudatum. Those get a more normal, albeit moist, Paph. treatment.

    Love that Evy Finegan, I have seen Grande x caricinum crosses for sale, with no "name".

    I like the Phrag. schlimii, it's so cute! But the Evy Finegan is quite handsome!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Yeah, Lisa was quite proud of her phrags (justly so!)

    It's funny Evy didn't carry a name, Diane...the cross has been registered since '97. You'd think someone could figure it out in that time.
