    Very nice! Looks like you had a little petal damage on the flower in the single flower picture?

    Nicely done Stephen. For me, I find it difficult keeping this species from the rot zone!

    Nice Stephen. What is the origin of this one?

    I have two clones of this species. Both have proven pretty straight forward to grow. No problems with rot.

    The pale yellowish tone of the flowers makes this species to an extraordinary one. Congrats to down under.

    My dark clone comes from Cape Oasis. They seem to have a few clones of this species.
