    That's amazing!
    I never expected that Rhy. gigantea has also an orange variety.
    Does this variety can be found in nature or is this color the result of crossing different Rhy. gigantea color varieties?

    Thanks Horst. I think this colour does not exist in nature but is the result of breeding.
