This one is getting towards a nice coca cola colour too.

The shapes and bumps on the lip is starting to get into aquatic hardware or even formula 1 car racing or independence day spacecraft or stealth bomber territory. Very nice and interesting.

Under cooler night temperatures, a subsequent flower show darker coloration, a characteristic of indigos (sequesters more colouring flavonoids during slower development). Very interesting grape colour in tepals. The lip retained the dark indigo violet.
