Phragmipedium (abbreviated Phrag.) Tall Tails is a primary hybrid with Phrag. wallisii and Phrag. caudatum). Phrag. wallisii (now classified as Phrag. warscewiczianum), native to Colombia, Peru and Ecuador, is famous for its long, green petals and light-colored pouch. It is more heat tolerant than other long petaled Phrags. Phrag. caudatum, found from Colombia to Ecuador, is a highly desirable species with very long petals—up to 24 inches or more! This is a fairly easy species to grow as it tolerates warmer temperatures and do not need to be kept as wet as many other Phrag species. This excellent strain of Phrag. Tall Tails, made by Orchid Zone, is easy to grow, compact, sequential bloomer and flowers for a long time. It has heat tolerance from parents. Phrag. Tall Tails is highly recommended for beginners or someone new to Phrags. Easily grown on a windowsill or under lights, potted in sphagnum moss or fine bark mix, sitting in a saucer of an inch or two of water. An excellent companion plant for Phalaenopsis. Flower color can vary with temperature; color will be darker if grown cooler. Note: it is normal for Phrags to expel its flower when it is done blooming while the flower is still in good shape. As these plants are seedlings, each plant is unique and may differ from the photo.

PLEASE NOTE: Since this is a Seedling Population (not a Mericlone which produces exact duplicates), the picture is for illustration purposes only. No two plants will be the same from this cross, and they will flower in a range of possibilities coming from the two parents.
