This one will probably open like a pallida.. but it's fun the way it is now.. maybe it will get stuck and not unroll it's petals!
It has a different leaf structure compared to a pallida.. and obviously is blooming a much different time then a pallida too.

If that stays that way, you should send a photo to Plants Nouveau! I'd buy one. LOL. Spider Echies coming soon!
i probably doesn't have to stay that way.. i have the photo... and i have photoshop (i am a graphic designer as well)... so terra nova should be set!

It is interesting , if it stayed that way I would get one.
Well it looks like i have keeper (as odd as it may be). The petals haven't unrolled at all since monday. I hope i get more blooms on this to verify that it's not just a one off odd ball bloom. I will save seed from this one too.

As odd as it is, I think that's why it's a keeper.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.
Looks like the form is stable.. that's good.
You can see the secondary bloom on the left.
