    Default Phrag Haley Decker

    The following photo was taken by Slipperorchid Grower from Central CT... and is posted here with his permission. It is currently in a display at the CT show in Hartford. It appears to be a softer pink than the first one to bloom. I have not had the opportunity to see this one in person yet.

    I am having nice grow rate with 2 of my hybrids but not the kovachii species. How are you culturing yours?

    Very nice photo.


    Elena, you have a good eye. "The guy next to it" is Phrag Jason Fischer, a rather popular phrag -- it is also a "parent" to lots of other beautiful phrags.

    He he, thanks, very kind of you. I'm not sure if I have a good eye, that colour is pretty hard to ignore!

    Normally i use s/h but the root system was just like threads when i got the seedling & did not want to risk it.
    I potted it in my Paph seedling mix (fine bark(20%), med bark(40%) & sphag(40%)).It is fertilised on the Sunday(natural ferts only) 100 ppm nitrogen & is watered with rainwater mid-week as a flush.
    It is in my growroom & gets 1500 fc for 12 hours with strong air movement , humidty is always above 50% & usually above 65%

    Really beautiful, Ron! Thanks for posting.
    Hopefully these things will be like dvd players---cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars initially...and eventually are available enough that you can pick one up for 30 or 40 bucks. I'm waiting patiently...
    I would like to try any of these great hybrids you've shown us, Ron. I think I'd be too nervous about sentencing one of the species to a certain death.
    I want one!!!

    I think patience will pay off on this species and its hybrids. It seems like these are now growing well for many growers and if that is the case, the market will soon be flooded with them. When that happens, the cost should go down just simply because there is a greater availability of the plants. Before you purchase, be sure to 'shop' around. Sometimes, smaller growers have better prices than the large 'big name' growers simply because they have less overhead. JMHO

    Ron, beautiful blooms. I am so glad you were allowed to share the photos with all of us. Thanks.

    Cheers,
    BD
