    This hybrid has been blooming forever on 2 spikes. Very fast grower and gets large as well. Photo was taken a couple of months ago.

    Paphraguy,
    All of your blooms and plants are beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing so many of them with all of us! I especially love Phrags that get really tall and showy.

    When we did the Little Rock Orchid Society AOS show back in March, there was a display that had huge Phrags similar to the one in your photo. They must have been a good three or four feet tall with multiple spikes of flowers in each pot. He used them as a background for his smaller paphs and a fountain. It was really nice. If I can find a photo of it I will post it.

    Thanks again for all the lovely photos of your stunning plants. Happy Growing!

    Cheers!

    Ooh. Very cool. If we could only get that rich color from the pouch onto some Grandes....

    (I'm still envious of your backdrop lighting effects. Need to practice with that.)

    Thanks for the nice comments!

    Yes, their spikes do get very tall about 3 - 4 ft tall because of the longifolium parent.

    Pete,

    Here is the photo of the Phrags that I was speaking about. They are a little hard to see against his backdrop, but they are on the left behind the fountain. Very tall!

    It's a 3MP Kodak digital camera, bought it brand new about 2 years ago and it's already ancient but does the job for now.

    For anyone who is interested, here is a photo I just found of our entry in the Little Rock Orchid Society Show in March of this year. It is a tabletop and we won best commercial tabletop exhibit along with several other trophies and ribbons.

    Cheers!
