Congrats for flowering it from seedling! I like the compact size of the plant, the reddish coloration of the dorsal and the straight red petals! Very nice henry Clone in my opinion.

I like these flowers. There seems to be something playfull about them, although the spots are probably there to attract carrion flies. That's one of the differences between people and flies I guess.

Lovely P. henryanum. Its reddish/brownish background colouration of the dorsal makes it very special. 👍

It's always a treat to see those first bloom seedlings. Yours is lovely.

The second flower is much bigger.....seems something (caterpillars or snails??) nibbled at the petals.

Yes caterpillars! I've found a few flowers with nibbles. Ugh it's always something!
Here's another sibling to the first henryanum. The cross is Bengal Tiger x Jumbo
