    The lighter coloured one has been open for a few weeks- now going a bit transparent. The darker red I only just found. Seems I bought both from the same Taiwan dealer, different shows. The darker red flowers are smaller, too .
    The lighter coiloured one has 4 flowers, and now two new growths ; both plants must be given a lot of tic , I am sure they can give more flowers per cane.

    Very interesting! I love that the red covers the whole lip.

    Interesting difference between the two, lean towards the red lipped one.
