Absolutely stunning display! If I can get mine to bloom even half as nice in the next few years I will be happy. Congrats!

Yeah it is sometimes a shame when plants peak at a time not convenient to judging. On the other hand there is more $ to buy more plants or a new greenhouse))

Finally all 8 flowers are open... I took the Diva out for glamour shots using the new Z Fold phone. Colors seem very saturated. Here is 'Supernova' in my balcony, late afternoon with reflected light from buildings:

very nice quality video.
Why the little plastic bags?
I dont like the 'Z' phone pictures (but love the flower)- all the detail is lost esp in the lip and halos around the lip point to 'over processing'.

That's some real intense color. My camera would go nuts trying to get the hue right.

So the first flowers have started to fade. The heat and low humidity are not friends to flower longevity. So I decided to self and sib cross two of the last flowers to open. Fingers crossed 🤞

Left flower is x sib (mossiae semialba flamea ‘Paz Lucia’). Should give all semialba flameas.

Right flower is x self, should give bigger flamea and better shape.
