It is a lovely version of this species. It looks like the version of carnea and i am sometimes confused with them.

If it isn't the film, this looks bluer than carnea. It is still beautiful.

In my experience (I have both) it is is a little bluer than carnea (more of a pink) and much lighter in color. It's a beautiful variety. Congratulations!

Those are really pretty. I especially like that the flowers appear to tower over the plant (or at least they're clear of leaves, which gives a cleaner look to them).
