Decent flowering for a smaller division. The colors are a little different from other pictures I've seen of the flower. It's a very big flower. For reference, the pot is a 5 inch round.

Beautiful there with soft colours! The blooom is huge!
Interesting that it was awarded because the petals are not wide and flat as one would expect, maybe it was awarded for size.

The petals probably weren't twisted when the flower was awarded. That's why it's best to bloom a flower several times. As the plant gets bigger, the flower size and shape can improve. I expect better form as the plant matures. Right now, it only has one blooming sized growth (in bloom) and three small growths.

When it gets bigger?
WOW! If the flower gets bigger
the stem wont be able to hold it.
I'll bet it will be GREAT when the plant
matures and grows!

NICE!
