    That is a lovely bloom! Robust! Obviously it's happy w/the S/H! I just switched both my phrags to s/h.

    That's truly lovely, Ron. Is the dorsal naturally furled like that? It's really striking.
    Is that your greenhouse in the background? Do you use clay pellets or something else in your s/h? I have one phrag in s/h and she's recovering nicely in clay pellet s/h after I nearly killed her.

    A friend of mine allows me growing space in his greenhouse. He is only a few minutes away from home. I have it in Hydroton (smooth expanded clay balls) a product purchased at a local hydroponic shop.
    The dorsal is furled that way to to the caudatum parent.

    I got a little toothpick happy and though Schroederae is not known as a good breeder, I took pollen from a division of this awarded Dominianum Hope it takes!!! Looking for a pink with longer petals. Hope the cross takes!
