    P. caerulea is supposed to have the tallest flower stalk out of any of the warm-temperate pings, as far as I know, around 8-9 inches tall. And in all the pics I've seen, it has had a straight spur, but maybe it's also normal, I dunno.

    Looks perfectly normal for a clone with lighter colored flowers. I've had clones like that before, they are, however, uncommon. The flower stalks can vary tremendously in length and degree of uprightness, all depends on genetics and environmental conditions, creating a phenotype (the characteristics we can observe)..

    Oh, ok, I didn't know that. I guess I kinda over-reacted as I usually do with new things. Has this species been known to make seeds easily?

    Here are some pics:







    I tried to pollinate it with a tooth pick, and I thought I got some pollen, but I'm not even sure if this flower is "ready" yet. Can anyone tell if there is even and pollen there? A quick reply would be nice since I don't know if I screwed this flower up horribly.

    Do P. caerulea flowers close every night like how P. primuliflora does?
