    I've got two of these labeled spicerianum #2 x sib (Wavy Gravy x Bostocks). The first flowered and I new it wasn't a true spicerianum so the vendor sent a replacement. But this looks too bulky for a true species. What are your thoughts?
    20200101_153732.jpg this is the first one I received.
    20200101_153641.jpg here is the replacement. Love the flower but I hope the rippled pouch doesn't persist into future flowerings.

    First one is definitely not a spicerianum. Maybe a primary hybrid with charlesworthii, possible with a complex. The second one is a spicerianum for sure. The ribbed pouch might be a one off, though one of the parent is named 'Wavy Gravy' (!). Only know when it reblooms.
