This is the first flower of a seedling of C.speciosum, 4 years after deflasking. An unusual feature of this flower is the splitted synsepalum, which normally is hidden behind the pouch. Therefore it seems as if the flower has four lateral petals. This feature didn't appear again in the following year.
