My P. urbanianum is blooming for the second time.
I love the markings of the staminode.

At first I was disappointed, as when the flower opened it looked like it would wither before opening. It had a strange angel and a quite different brownish colour compared to last time. (next two fotos)

Very nice wide dorsal on this one. Also darker round two.

Looks like a single growth left, so might need to gather more strength to show potential.

Thank you all!
Leslie, yes it is darker and still a single growth. Unfortunateley after the first flower in 2019 I nearly lost the plant by spider mites. I've won the war but the collateral damage set it back a season.

Many blessings you were there to save her. She can only get better from now on (but already beautiful at this blooming).

Beautiful! The markings on the staminate look like a pair of angel wings.
