    I have seen a few of these blooms, but not enough to know what constitutes a choice flower. I know that the pouch can have more color and can have a different shape. The petals on this one seem nice, but I’m not sure about the dorsal sepal at all. What do you guys think? I actually just inherited 3 different Fanaticums that I have never seen bloom so seeing those and comparing all of them will be fun.

    The tesselation in the petals is quite nice, but a bit of pink is also attractive.

    Nice, I found mine became more pink as it got older. I'm no expert but I like it.
