    Lovely! It makes me want a Phrag even more. I've had some good luck with the orchids that like it moister using S/H - with a translucent pot its very easy to see if it needs water. On the other hand, water quality is an issue here, so what would you recommend? I can certainly place it where I examine it every day.

    I find them easy with minimal care. Just water daily. Sphag has helped mine incredibly!

    You got that right! I woke up the last 2 days with other Phrag blooms on the floor. Both of those Phrags still have more buds to open.
