    Here's my Phrag richteri in bloom. It's almost done blooming now (been in bloom on 2 spikes for months).

    Really nice shot, Pete. I love how evenly the spiral petals curl.

    Thanks, guys!

    Yes, it is quite an attractive species especially the long grasslike foliage.

    Thanks for posting, Pete! How big are the flowers? I guess mine really is a richteri, although it hasn't flipped the switch into grow mode yet...(an older pic)

    Jason,

    The blooms are about 3 - 4" wide, not that big. I think mine is now in the grow mode again.

    Thanks for posting!
