    Not bad in terms of color and form. Size at 10.8 cm HNS could be larger, but it's a single growth so it has good potential. IMG_2403-4.jpg

    Nice shape. Do you know the parents? Also, do I detect a bit of a white halo around the center? I have been seeing it often in several of my kovachii hybrids. Mike

    Love the color and no reflexed petals. Do you think
    the dorsal will straighten out either as the bloom
    or the plant matures?

    Not sure whether the dorsal will straighten out or not, Angela . There's one more bud coming though, so that should tell us something.

    Mike,

    The plant came originally from Ecuagenera a couple years ago, so there's no parentage info., but given the shape of the flower I'd think P. kovachii was the capsule parent. We've also seen that "halo" in several of the FS clones and wonder whether it could be due to some environmental change during bud maturation. Anyone else seen this in their Fritz Schomburgs?
