    Flowered this a couple of times, still trying to get the best out of it. This flower is near fully open, 2 others on the spike are coming along.

    It does have a tendency to add a few unwanted furls & twists in the petals. The 2 other flowers have opened in a not so good way. I'll check them out today it I don't need a boat to get down to the greenhouse. Had just a bit of rain over night !!!!
    I did pack the flowers to see if that helps.

    I suppose that with petals so wide there is hardly enough room for them, and I can see that problems could arise just because of this. But a remarkably good flower when shown like this.
