Yours is about as dark as I have seen.Thanks for all your comments. Looks like I’m lucky to get a nice one.
@Justin - very nice! Great to get some idea of the variation. Hoping to eventually get one with even more Vini color - probably not from these parents then. ... How long did it take you from flask to flower? Was that under greenhouse conditions？
Thanks for the commment, helps put my plant in context. ... One of our club members posted a photo of one with lots of red on the tips of the lateral petals and edges of the ds, will ask him more about the background.Yours is about as dark as I have seen.
Mine started blooming about nine years from flask. That is probably a long time, but I grow indoors so things are slower for me. They are pretty vigorous plants actually.
