    It is a beautiful photograph....and it looks like gratrixianum to me. However, it's only been open for a few hours. It will change in form dramatically over the next 24 to 48 hours. It would be very interesting to show us what it looks like in a few days.

    I was thinking hybrid, also. The shape isn't like the gratrixes I've seen posted. But maybe line breeding has created this one.

    Could you possibly show a picture of the whole plant? I'm wondering how big it had to get to flower.

    I have what looks like a bunch of seedlings in one pot, possibly a compot, or else it's a very small plant with lots of growths.


    Nice looking flower. :clap:

    Thank you for the updated photos and the one showing the whole plant; it resembles the one I have - lots of growths.

    I wondered if the first picture was just barely open.
    A nice gratrixianum to be sure.
