    Cool Phrag Priscilla' Pirouette 1st Rebloom

    Purchased Feb 2015 in bloom. Brought it home and broke the spike off within 24 hours! Now 12 months later, it has grown well and has now started a rebloom. First of what appears to be at least 2 buds. The next buds are inside the sheath, so I can't really tell how many are there.

    I kept it in sphag and I have been able to grow it successfully.

    Phrag Priscilla' Pirouette (dalessandroi x Acker's Ballerina)

    Pretty bloom and the plant looks very healthy. I wondered if phrags are harder to cultivate than paphs. Or are they about the same?

    Phrags like to stay wet. I have never allowed it to dry except when I went on vacation and I had no choice. My paphs I water with everyone else that gets water 2 times a week.

    Beautiful! I love the Phrags and will probably get one to try this summer. Keeping it wet will be a challenge for me, but I really like them.

    Leave it in sphag and put it in a tray that can hold water and just pour a little water in it every day and it'll be fine. 10 seconds! Mine makes it to the sink once a month on kelp day.

    Beautiful Harvey! A friend has been trying to talk me into one but I always seem to kill plants that need to be kept moist.
