    Hi Dan, there's absolutely no shame in showing us your plants, in fact you should be rightfully proud and we are thankful that you have shared with us this flowering... sometimes, in the midst of a cold winter, the flowers from the other side of the world are all we have to rely on to bring a smile to our face

    I really like this colour form... I have never seen one where the sepals are half pink and half white... it's real pretty...
