    Thanks Alita. Note, Jeff's comment that I may actually have the false 'John Rizzi'.

    But, here's the laueana - 'Rizzi' side by side:


    Today the top petals are standing up a bit more. The flower had just opened yesterday, so it may "flatten out" a little.

    I needed one more hand and a bit more daylight than I have to truly get this pic - but here's all three together:

    Huh, I thought the slimmer petals were cultivation differences or something. John Rizzi flowers are supposed to be exceptionally large but I haven't seen a side by side comparison yet... Still a nice flower. Love the triple shot!

    Yes, agreed. From the links you provided earlier - it does appear that I may have the "false" variety. I wasn't aware that there was a 'false' and a 'real', so I appreciate the information that you shared. Maybe I should rename the thread..."Will the real John Rizzi please stand up"
