I've had this rosea for almost a year. Since I got it, the colors have improved considerably. I'm not giving it all that much sun but it doesn't seem to need it to look good. I'll try to post a top shot this weekend.

Definitely a sick plant - virused! I suggest trash it!  Cheesy  Grin  Wink  Smiley

I remember an article about H rosea in the BSI journal once - J Kent? Love this species. Those marks go into its hybrids too, just like MT. It also selfs. I think Harry regards it a large form of stellata.

Cheers, Pedro

Wow that is one nicely marked specimen. I was always of the opinion that rosea needed lots of direct/full sun to greaten the markings. Perhaps this isn't true and it's dependant on strain/source.

I think H rosea is a good example of how heat/warmth rather than sun/light can impact its markings. Mine will be green in winter and bronze/rose/cream spotted in summer, and it stays in the same place all year.

I yanked it out of its spot this morning, fought some ants and cleaned it up a bit.
