    Default My first Phragmipedium and it is blooming!

    This is my first Phrag, I purchased it in beginning spike and it now has 2 spikes and 2 blooms open. It is Andean Fire (besseae Red x indlevanum 'Birchwood' AMS/AOS) Sometimes it look like a deep pink and other times it looks orange, depending on the lighting. It looks like the colors in a desert sunset.

    Congrats, Katie, it is beautiful. I'm still trying to get my first little phrag to survive. I'll show her your Andean Fire - I'm sure it will inspire her!

    Very nice, Katie! And a great job blooming her! Keep the pot in fresh water and you should get blooms for some time.

    What do you mean by keeping the pot in fresh water?
