Sometimes it amazes me, for an intellengent woman, just how dumb I can be!
A couple of months ago I got a surprise present of some money from my Mum in the UK so I thought I'd treat myself to some orchids....as you do..lol
I probably bought about a dozen plants, among which I thought I'd chosen two good sized, healthly looking Paph's! The larger one has even put up a new shoot since I bought it home. The larger one was marked at AU$50 but the lady at the nursery gave it to me for AU$25 because I'd bought over AU$250 worth.
Well yesterday I was doing my usual weakly/weekly watering when I had a good close look at the larger plant and was amazed at what I think is a spike! Then I looked at the label and realised it doesn't say Paph it say PHRAG! I then looked at the smaller one's label and that is also a PHRAG!
I don't have any other phrags, I've never owned a phrag!
Meet Phrag caudatum x self
, who I believe is in spike?
And Phrag Tall Tails
I know absolutely nothing about phrags but I must be doing something right as I've had them a couple of months and they are still healthy.
Can anyone tell me how long the spike is likely to take to mature/bloom and what I am likely to see when it does?
