    Does it change color a week or so after blooming? My Yellow Bird starts with a pink bloom, then fades to yellow.

    Some have spots, some don't....yes it looks like yellow bird to me. And you say it is an easy grower and bloomer...i'd say yellow bird as it is by far the easiest of the nodosa crosses, imho. It's lovely and sunny...enjoy! Your plant looks very healthy and happy, wtg!

    Hi Lizgeo, no the one i shoot are just open a day or two. but the one on the right open about 2 weeks and still same in yellow color? i'll check with the 3rd spike whether it will different in color. or maybe i need to change the position to check the flower? its facing west, so the light is very bright.
