    Default Some phrags for you enjoyment !

    and a New Year's Resolution...to not be a stranger here ! My hubby has taken a liking to phrags and has done quite well growing them..actually stumbling on a method for me to grow them without having them sit in trays of water, because I have to run a dehumidifer in the winter to keep it from raining in my grow room.. these are a few we have enjoyed over the past few months..most are first blooms. Hope you enjoy them !

    They're all fantastic, but the way the last one was photographed with the butterfly on the wall has got me hooked!

    Wow! Beautifull flowers! Nice job! I think I am going to have to pick numbers 1 and 2 as my favorites.

    Thanks to all ! You really should try growing phrags if you haven't ! They reward you with lots of roots and faster growths than paphs. They do require a little higher light but we have budded them under flourecents.
    I too, find it difficult to choose my favorites...that is why I have 2 Red Skys, same form but different color ! Waunakee Doll was a doll in that she was in bloom a long time and was my first branching phrag !
