    Vigorous plant - what culture/conditions are you maintaining for this plant?

    Hi AJ, welcome to OrchidTalk.

    I grow most of my phrags in a bark/ coconut husk mix. Water twice a week in the hot months and once a week in the cooler months. Feed every other time except when I am in a hurry. Sometimes I only get to feed every third time. I always rotate fertilizers and feed with a very weak mix. During the summer the phrags (at least these that like the heat) get plenty of bright, diffuse light. In the winter, we pull back the shade cloth to give them more light. Hope this is what you wanted to know.

    Cheers,
    BD
