    Default C. mossiea var semi alba

    This is a first bloom seedling. The petals have been damaged a bit by all the shuffling around I do to water and then photo plants. Hope for better form and color as plant matures.

    Love the lip on that one. I'm sure it will be stunning in a few years when it starts producing multiple leads.

    No, no fragrance. I should add that this is the national flower of Venezuela, and I had the opportunity to see many growing in the wild, mostly the normal colorization.
