    Congratulations Paul!
    Mine will flower in some weeks too. It will hopefully be as nice as yours.

    I prefer the colored form by huge margin!

    As someone said above, there's something spooky about this flower.

    There's something special about this variety. Is it aureum or album?

    It's called f. aureum, officially ;)

    the pouch is more yellow than petals are.

    To answer, it's the same size as a regular lowii (30cm high, 40cm wide), one blooming growth + one half mature growth.
