Shimai Sport with Bilateral Blooms? (Part 2)

As a follow up from the last blog, the third pair of blooms opened.  The bilateral behavior has ceased.  The bloom pair and all the other blooms now forming are producing the dark stripe as an overlay to the green stripe producing a dark purple stripe on a white petal.   If this is stable or not I am ot certain and some stem cultures through 3-4 generations will demonstrate that.  I will be starting that process.  Also as a foot note I started stem cultures on the bilateral bloom and a couple of plantlets have formed.  In 8 months or so we should have a bloom and a little more insight.

Above are the images of the third pair and both blooms are now the same mutated color.
