    Yes, I think it got the best qualities of both parents. I love the color on the dorsal....so lovely, but I do like the darker petals on it. I also like that the Grande I have is the golden variety. So different!

    oh, yes, my new buckets double well as a pedestal too!

    Ok, that's interesting, thanks guys. My Phrag Wossner Super Grande has been getting full sun for much of the day and the leaves are VERY yellow-green rather than greenish-yellow, if that make sense - it had me a bit worried, that's why I asked. But if it's more a question of the leaves burning, which they're not, then I won't worry about it.

    Surely! And don't think y'all aren't going to get a petal length update on a daily basis! (I am such a nutter!)

    John, as long as you're not noticing burn, or leaves bleaching to white, your super-G will be fine. As Jason and Pete said, they need quite a bit of light to bloom well, and that sometimes comes at the expense of "pretty" (read nice, deep green, houseplant-looking) foliage.

    So, no worries.
