I love this species!

It’s my mission and intention to collect all varieties of these (with exceptional flower forms):

Alba
Albescent
Coerulea
Semialba
Flamea
Lisa (pink no spots)
Aurea (orange)
Typo round 4n

I have secured most of these except the coerulea, semialba and Lisa. Good forms of those are quite hard to get.

The selected ones I have here are grown warm and bright in semi water culture (SWC). They seem to like it and established quite fast. Let’s hope the new growths bloom!

OMG!! You will need a lot of species to house all these giant plants! :)
Would be such a sight to behold to have all those in bloom together, though!
I had Interglossa (a primary with intermedia), much smaller plant but with similar flowers just smaller head. :)

Interesting that at first sight i thought that flower could be virused, but only the back side spots appear through the petals.

Oh, Les...I can hardly put my pen to the paper, seething with envy as I am....I better hurry to thank you for the splendiferous presentation of these colour forms - personally, I'm maybe especially drawn to your aurea and alba flowers, but the sum of the whole...!
Ouch, I feel the snapping at my heels... I better hurry, before I'm entirely devoured and swalloped up by that green eyed monster! 😁

PS. Istvan, Leslie's pathetic attempt to upstage you doesn't detract one iota from the beauty of your typical flower! ;)
