    That is beautiful. I like the yellow shades on that flower.

    I have the exact same plant (even same award) but the flowers were white, with green shades instead of yellow. The patterns are all identical - even the stripe along the petals. Just different colors.
    I wonder if it was due to lack of light or I happen to have an alba variation.

    The color form that you have is actually what I was expecting from my plant.
    This is what I had.

    Mine is in very bright light. On my monitor, the sepals are an olive green, which is close to my plant's true color.

    Most of the ones I have seen are more like yours in coloration, John. Almost got one of these as they are one of the few green flowers that I actually like a lot. But I know that the blooms tend to be rather short lived so I have resisted.

    That seems to be the case with my plant. I dont think the individual flowers even lasted a week.
    I thought it was just a fluke on my part.

    Once mine blooms, I then move it into shade. It is short lived compared to many Catts but I get at least 3 weeks out of a flower.

    Very nice, Ron...I like the shape of your blooms much better than what mine produced this year!
