    Smile Phrag Priscilla' Pirouette In Bloom

    This is the 3rd and last mature growth to bloom this year. There are at least 2 new growths that will bloom in the future.

    This is the best flower of the bunch so far.

    You should try them I think they would do well in Canada. They like lots of water. Grow well in sphag and generally do well with cooler temps.

    This is the first time I have grown 2 Phrag blooms on a single plant at the same time. But not for long! New Phrag bloom pics coming soon.
