Phrag. Hanne Popow

(besseae 'Deutschland' x schlimii '#2')

Registered in 1991, Phrag. Hanne Popow was part of the first wave of hybrids from the luminous Phrag. besseae. Hanne Popow is a vigorous grower that produces small but delightful flowers in varying shades of pink, white, and yellow. It is a relatively compact plant as far as phrags go, but does tend to inherit the climbing habit of its schlimii parent, in which the new growth sits a couple of inches above the old growth. Adding a wad of sphagnum moss at the base of the new growth (and misting it daily) will help encourage new root growth, especially under the drier conditions of the windowsill.
