    Default Kaleidoscope?

    This one has been a reliable bloomer for the past 1-2 years - I love the color! It has 3 flowers open with one more on the way.

    Sure looks it, Christopher! Mine has just come out also. Big flowers that start with a greenish background that fades to a subtle green with pronounced purple veining. If it's well watered while blooming, the flowers last forever. Mine blooms 2+ x per year!

    Congrats!

    Color really is very nice--definitely off the beaten path. Blooms look nice and flat, too!

    I will say that of the phals that I have bloomed, this has consistently provided the flattest flowers. I suspect that plant genetics may have more of a factor than what I have done, since the others haven't fared quite as well so far. Or, maybe its the learning curve for growing...
