    Not really...I have a couple that definitely qualify for the "gangly" term. I bought a huge plant last year and repotted it out of what looked like really broken down potting. It still sulks and it is gangly and ugly right now. Wish it would straighten up...

    Here are a couple more pictures. The first flower has reached it's full color, while two buds that opened this morning show how quickly they begin changing color. They begin nearly white with pale veining, and only an hour or two later they begin changing to a lovely pink. The first picture is the closest to the actual color. Also; when you go from four or five blooms to only one bloom they are alot bigger than normal.
