First flowering of this nice schilleriana.
The plant Is quite big with many bulbs but never bloomed before, maybe I kept It too shaded. Last autumn I moved her in a brighter position in the upper more ventilated part of the GH she definetely enjoyed!

Very nice, well done! Such a unique species. Do you know if this is the "imperialis" form? I was wondering what the difference was, I guess bigger flowers?

Wow Lorenzo, this is a beauty ! I love the contrast between the chocolate colour of sepals and petals and the intense red colour of the red stripes/parts of the lip. 👌
