Beautiful, can I ask what leaves the white residue on the leaves? I use thiomyl and it does this, was curious if that's what it is.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

On occasion I add soluble gypsum to my fertigation water... it leaves a little white residue that easily wipes off.

Nice size bloom for the size of the plant. Is this the usual size?
I've never even tried to grow one of those.

I received a JC/AOS on this plant Saturday. Recognized for the distinctiveness of the deep lavender over all of the segments and robust substance.

Congratulations!
I personally like the JC as it recognizes distinctive characteristics in cases where some “form” or other issues might preclude a “ typical “ quality award, Particularly for species that now have such a high bar.
