    The pattern is very unique. Its so unsymmetrical. Is there a reason for this or is it "natural"?

    Stunning. the asymmetrical colouring does occur quite frequently with tetraspis.

    That is the hallmark of the C#1 clone. The coloration is highly variable from completely white flowers to almost completely red and everything in between. I always say that if you don't like a flower on C#1, just wait for the next round . Just as an example of that variability, here are some of the flowers on mine.
