    Cool Phrag Olaf Gruss

    1st rebloom of this Phrag Olaf Gruss (besseae x pearcei). Has the potential to be a multi-floral blooming, if the other 4 buds can open. It is something I have never done before. Though I do have 2 blooms on my Phrag Priscilla's Pirouette right now too.

    This Phrag has 5 new growths coming up behind this blooming.

    I bought one too on auction, did not check label right away... two weeks later either i have this plant with wrong label or other one with right label. The seller i brought it from never sent me messed up plants. If label correct for plant i got more expensive one but still not the one i wanted lol
