    If it stays in bloom for 6 weeks it is worth breeding, no matter how ugly you think it is. So many vietnamense barely make it a week. The coloring is interesting too.

    Send it to me. It is an amazing flower -- better look at it with fresh eyes.

    A sister plant is about to open in the next few days. Very simular but maybe more pink. I have 7 plants and all from Quintal Farms.
