Not bad flower for a first bloom hybrid. Good solid colors and shape.

Plant looks still young and small. So this is not its potential yet.

Well, the Röllkes should know, since Senne Calle is a hybrid of their making! The influence of wardii in your clone, though, is rather faint to spot, but the cute reddish spots in the central part of the flower is a most endearing trait (a reminicence of the niveum in its background, I guess?).

The flower is presenting itself proudly, but maybe it might be adviceable to cut it and put it in a vase, so the plant preserves its strength and uses the energy on growing (an advice Leslie and others conveyed to me recently in a parralell situation, so I really can't take credit for it! 😉).

That's great, I was going to ask advice on this forum on that very subject.. As Dr Leslie said the plant is young and small so I didn't expect it to bloom yet, but it seems as though it's struggling as it also has a couple of new growths as well. I wondered if cutting the flower was the best thing to do and you have confirmed this for me - thank you! :)

This one is a nice callosum-like flower. In fact it looks more like a selfing of callosum than like a Senne Calle, which is ((callosum x niveum) x wardii) x callosum.

These were my thoughts, too. Nothing or almost nothing to see of P. niveum and P. wardii in this flower. But it is lovely without any doubt. 👍

Sometimes the best thing with young and small plants is....already cut the bud. But this is against our curiousity to see the first flower. Producing a flower can a small plant overstrain.
