The petals are still lengthening, but thought I might not get the chance to take some more pics over Christmas.
Bought as Phrag.Grande, but as I understand it this is now classed as Leslie Garay (longifolium x caudatum). Either way, has the pink and green combo I was hoping for!

Phrag Grande is longfolium X humboldtii; Lesley Garay is caudatum X longifolium so they are not the same plant. If that is what you have been told then it is incorrect.

Whatever the name is you certainly have a great flowering.

According to Olaf Gruss the breeding of Grande is hartwegii x longifolium...... seems Grande can be a multitude of crosses!!!

Ed where have you seen this?
I go by the International Orchid Register produced by the R.H.S. for a definitive name for Orchid Hybrids. They list Prag. Grande as longfolium X humboldtii. As far as I can see hartwegii has only four progeny :- Hat Creek; Pink Pearl;Boulder River and Horse Haven.

There is no registered hybrid of hartwegii and longifolium.

This one is gorgeous! The petals are still extending? Oh dear they are already fantastically long.
Great growing.
