    Default Phrag. Grande Division from Peter

    This is the most beautiful plant. I cannot wait until it blooms, but in the meantime the leaves are keeping me satiated! Fan is so lovely! Someone should *really* buy that other division!!! I think you can really see the longifolium parent in this one. Leaves are so similar to my St. Peter. Nice growing Paphraguy!!
    Oh, Peter - can you see the shadow of the IE behind? Look at me, learning to take pics w/ no green trees! Lol!

    Heather, thanks for posting! It looks very pretty in its new pot and the IE shadow in the background looks very dramatic. Very nice pics! I'm glad you like the Grande. It will be beautiful when it blooms and the blooms are are also very BIG with foot long petals.

    Heather,
    What a great division and it looks like you have repotting down pat! A friend gave me a grande division a couple of months ago....I thought it was potted too deep....but it is finally showing new growth! Hope to see blooms next year!

    Yeah, it is a beauty! I love it!! Sigh....
    These were my first bare root plants also. I've had a lot of potting practice as of late. Still enjoy it, still get nervous.
