    Default Potinara Hoku Gem

    I know Jane just posted another one of these, but I promised a few people I would post this when the blooms were opened up. It has four spikes this time around, and 8 of the 10 flowers are now open. I'm amazed at the color variation within the same plant's blooms at the same time!

    The first picture is more accurate. The second one got washed out a bit with the flash.
    Thanks for the comments. This has been an easy grower and reliable bloomer for me. I've had about two years now I think.
