This plant has not bloomed since 2010. It was enormous and in dire need of repotting which I did in spring 2012. I got 5 good sized pieces 4 of which I sold and I kept the biggest for myself. This is it's best blooming to date. It has never had a branched spike before, and has only held 1 flower at a time. I'm very pleased to see this old friend again. It was my very first Phrag. I guess annual repotting really IS worth the effort.
Those are my principles and if you don't like them......I have others.
