    Default Bargain from nursery

    Stumbled across this one a couple of weeks ago at a local grower.
    It was discounted for 3 Euro's because of a split leave.
    I think it looks great and almost has the biggest flowers in my collection.

    Still have to figure out how to get the colours right.
    Since I'm usually not at home during the day most pictures are taken with flash.
    The actual colour is a soft shade of yellowish green with a real deep orange lip.

    Erik:
    Do you use a digital camera or an analog?
    If you use an analog than turn on your ligts at the living room, i guess you have tungstem light there as well and buy a tungstem film it usually called T and a number which represnt the sensetivity of the film, if you use digital camera just set the white balance to indoor it's the symbole of the light bulb in your digital camera.
