    Oh, I wouldn't know but they do look a lot darker than the dianthum leaves, so you may be correct, I don't know.

    Well, now that I look at the earlier shots you took, I don't see the reddishness. I bet it was just the lighting, or the blue background reflecting or something.

    I did spray the plant with water before taking those pics, so a combination of the wet plant, lighting and the blue background created the reddish tone. Next time, I'll use a blackground especially when plants are wet.

    The spike is really much taller, but you are right about the buds. They seem to be about the same size as before. I see the reddish hue too H, but I think it is a reflection of something in or around the plant that is causing it. Regardless, it is a beautiful plant Pete! Very healthy. I look forward to seeing it open.

    Cheers!

    Thanks, Bruce!

    Heather, I took another pic of parishii (sprayed with water again) with a different background color. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks! Very strange, the blue color background, water and lighting would cause the reddish tone.

    I love my parishii, also!

    Yes, what do you know? On the other hand you know I really love the bright blue background!

    Maybe the next time when I use the blue background, I'll make sure the plant is nice and dry, no water spraying.
