    Smile Psycopsis Kalihi alba 'Green Valley'

    This is the second flower on my Psycopsis Kalihi alba 'Green Valley'. The first one opened asymmetrically, so I didn't post it then.

    Both flowers, so far, have not opened the lip out flat. I think that it should. Is that right?

    It is nice anyway, IMHO.

    Kalihi can have a fuller flatter lip, or it can be wavy and curl back in a V at the tip, etc. This looks nicely balanced, but if you decide it isn't good enough for you there's room on my compost pile...

    Looks like I may have the wavy and curl back in a V at the tip version.

    No, I am quite happy with it. In fact, at noon today, I am going to get a tattoo of it!
