    The second flowering of this plant ; last time it had 3 flowers, 9.5cm , this time it produced four buds, but two aborted ; larger flowers, just over 10cm. Last time my pics showed a darkish pink flower, with spots etc. Quite different from what is seen here - however these flowers have only been open for a day or two. I expect they will change colour as they age.
