Comments HD03 The dark edge on the flower petals are nice. Personally I don't like plants with wide open sinuses, makes the leaves look messy.

Comments HD04 I really like this one! Too bad about the burning in high summer. May be better suited to northern climates :).

Comments HD07 Nice double flower. I like the number of flowers versus leaves. A neat plant. The rhizomes look a bit thin and I am not sure if this is a strong grower enough to maintain itself in a hobbyist's pond.

Comments HD08 Striking flower colours. Really nice. Earlier in the season the plant looks neat. Later in the season the leaves spread a bit too far for my liking. I see some Arc-en-Ciel genes here :)

Comments HD10 What a show stopper! I looove the big buds on this plant. Beautiful leaves. Lots of petals on the flowers, but personally I am more of a fan of neatly ordered petals that are not wrinkled.

Comments ISG02 What a good looking plant in the mid season! I am impressed. Later in the season it becomes a bit messy and the flower shape becomes irregular. I wish it would look good the whole season!

Comments ISG03 I got really excited when I saw the preview of this plant. I recognize the pattern of the leaves from a certain tropical :) . Too bad that the flower shape is not always good. The stalks look a bit thin.

Comments ISG04 This looks like a good reliable plant. For an ISG it starts flowering early in the summer. Something is missing, and I can't really say what it is. :(

Comments ISG05 This looks a lot like Queen Sirikit. It looks like and absolute gem, WHEN it is in flower. The flower shape is just perfect. I think this slow grower needs a more shallow depth to excel.

Comments ISG06 A unique plant for sure! Lots of flowers standing high above the water line. Excellent leaves with a marking I haven't seen before. I'll forgive this show stopper that the flowers are not always perfectly formed.
