    Congratulations, Eva. The green and purple make a stunning contrast.

    Congratulations EvaJ. I would be interested to know how long yours had been open before you photographed it? The Dorsal sepal on yours is much more reflexed (vertical) than mine. I am not sure if this reflates to age of the flower, growing conditions or the strain of the plant in question.

    EcaJ. Our respective flowers would have been within a day of each other so its not the age of the flower.
