    well, i didnt wanna make it too easy for you guys,
    but here is a pix from the whole plant, its a dendro, but bloom really reminds me on a catt or mini.
    it also reminds me on a "nobile", and if so, that would explain the fast fading of colours, its already more whitish and the other bud never opened. she only got morning sun, but we had some suuuuper hot days, maybe thats why.

    oh, another mark could be quite short and thick cane's with not many leaves growing on it.
    so any clue????

    thanks,

    I would like to know what it is also, there is a similar type of Den flower in the "photos"
    on a vendor website. Den. nobile flowers don't usually fade in color they're nearly dead.
