    Well, I can only say that it is nothing, compering with wonders I have seen here in Latvia! Dark blue phals (feeded with ink), silver tillandsias, black phals with silver or golden petals- depends on choice! I have noticed that there are special group of people who buy it all and even post it in Fecebook with joy and pride- look what I`ve got! Usually those ladies wear fake diamonds, while going to local market and gentleman have HUGE gold rings on every finger they have and have not!
    Why do people in all times want to be more creative that God himself? We have rights to breed, to try, but this....
