    Thanks for looking. Of all the neo flowers I bloomed, the white and purple are the best color and form, and they are the cheapiest too. I am very disappointed with the green one and don't think it worth the money.

    they truly are elegant flowers, congratulations on them all, and maybe the green one will put on a better show next year.

    And HUGE if I remember correctly, I could only imagine the smell

    I can't stop looking at this one. I must admit I didn't realise Shutenno had coloured petals, I thought it was just the cherry red 'stalks'. Is this something that can depend on light or other cultural factors?

    It is genetic factors. These this cultivar blooms pink.

    Hey are these guys pollenated with a nocturnal insect with a proboscus too? Like a Angraecum which is pollenated by a moth. They both have a spur at the end of the bloom
