It reminds me of a Don Wimber flavum I had years ago but lost.
I am not a fan of pale pink or pale orange yet I always appreciate anything that blooms. Maybe the color would be better if it was not 90 degrees daytime , 70 degrees nighttime in Florida currently.

I have this cross and the winter bloom is much darker. This flower is quite pretty
anyway. I like it.

Michael, Plant looks healthy, but young. Not sure if it’s just the snap, but the leaves look plenty dark and the flower stalk is a bit spindly. If it were mine, I would try easing it into a brighter spot as it matures. The leaves get a bit lighter green, but some of my reds and oranges have gotten more intense. Just a thought. Kate.
