    Apparently, there are many ways to make fake Bellinas. I saw one at a show that looks like bellina but smells bad. I wonder how many ways are out there? Post your fake Bellinas?

    I have one that everyone believes it's a bellina, but it's not. It's actually Violacea Alba x Bellina Mondo

    There is a documented history of suspect breeding that continues to plague the violacea and bellina species. The mixing of bellina and violacea was the beginning, but now you see micholitzii and who knows what else showing up in supposed species.
