This is a super floriferous grex. While flower size can vary a little, all the ones I have seen have had solid pink flowers.

Last year, some of the flowers on this plant lasted 3+ months. When I looked closer at the plant, I discovered that it had produced keikis at the end of the two flower spikes with long lasting flowers (as well as traditional basal keikis).

This year, it is blooming from one of the flower spike keikis, which has not produced roots yet (white circle). The other flower spike keiki has no flowers, but has produced two roots (orange circle). I will separate this keiki in a month or so, when the temperates are a little higher.
