    I tried one of these and it wasn't too fond of the heat. I would love to see one at a show...up close. Thanks for sharing your lovely flower...

    Very good shape and the delicate blush of pink is making it a great plant.

    Ah, lovely! The faint blush provides a nice accent for the overall look.

    I had forgotten how different the lip shape was on this species from most catts.
