    Another bloomed this year. It's distinctly purple rather than brown like its sibs:

    Looks like the staminode is different on this plant also.

    I like that pink colour a lot! Usually P. tranlienianum become pink when the flower is old and starts fading. This flower probably has been more brown in the beginning, isn't it?

    That's the weird thing - it opened up purple. The bloom in this photo is only about a week old and hasn't changed since opening.

    Huh, I didn't even notice that. But yes, the umbo is distinctly green whereas the others had solid yellow staminodes. I'll take some close-ups when I get the plant back Tuesday.

    Hopefully in a year or two this one will bloom with one of the two I kept from the first photo. I'd love to see them side-by-side.

    Why should such a colour mutation not happen in a line breeding? I like this lovely flower very much because of its colour.

    Red forms are rare. Green umbos are even more rare. Please self this one! I’ll take a few flasks lol.

    Here's the staminode. In most photos I've seen it's solid yellow, but there's very little yellow in mine:

    Lol... I just scoured the net for photos and it appears that about half of the tranlienianum have a green umbo.

    Did you see any purple blooms? I'm wondering if this bloom just has its expression of yellow suppressed. The normal brown coloration may just be a mixture of purple and yellow.
