    Talking Phrag. Wallisii - here they come!

    I went to Arkansas for a few days (boy is it COLD there!) and I just knew these babies were going to open while I was gone. So this is what I came home to...the petals on the flower that is fully open are 13 inches so far. I can't wait to see the plant when both are fully open! They have the prettiest maroon spotting inside the pouches.
