    They should be! One of the best PEOY crosses with excellent parents!

    The form may be variable, but the size should be genetically present. The PEOY I got from parkside is almost identical, both in plant size and breeding ('Deep Pockets' is the other famous sandy clone used by the OZ). Judges would probably gag at the slightly rolled dorsals, but the flower size was there.

    They also have it listed at $200.00! I paid less than half of that price and mine is HUGE! I still can't get over it!

    They had those for 60 this spring during a sale. Absolutely enormous plants. Which is why I had to get one, even though I already had a mature PEOY. I am sure all of those plants have spiked or bloomed by now too; they were that healthy. (But I still picked the one with a fat leaf base). And yes, I was just as pleased with the acquisition.

    Yes, I remember that! And that was what made me jealous in the first place, so I just had to get one. You were even luckier!

    Jason, you grow your plants on windowsills, right? How do you keep them happy without supplemental lights? Or do you use them and I just forgot?

    I have a south/southwest exposure, so it's plenty of light for paphs & phrags. I even grow a few standard catts, but they are inches away from the glass. You can grow most paphs & phrags with an unobstructed east window (or west, but then you have to deal with afternoon heat). Just a matter of distance from the glass.

Notified the seller and see what happens.

    Here is the pic of the beautiful PEOY. I love it!

    Sorry to hear about the broken roots, hopefully you will get a postive response. I think the PEOY looks fantastic!
