    Default Bulbo Daisy Chain - Do I have two plants in one pot?

    I was given this plant a couple of months ago. It's a good size (about 14" pot) plant, and has been blooming very well, and became one of my favorites

    It bloomed the whole summer with yellow petals (the first picture). Then the pink/red petals (the second picture) showed up about a month ago. I thought that the color might change a little since weather had finally cooled off here in Texas. To my surprise, the yellow ones showed up again, and some pink ones too. I also noticed that the pink petals are shorter than yellow ones.

    Do I have two bulbo in one pot? If yes, what would be the name for the pink one? I also have 3 tiny seedpods from the pink bloom.

    By the way nice Bulbo you got there can be happen as the darker flower apparently one of the most prettiest man made hybrids from the same parent.
