James,
That's wild. It's got a beautiful base.
I've only noticed one other 4 petal flower.

I agree both Blooms are beautifu!

I especially like the wide glistening base of the arabicum. It reminds me of Chickie.

I looked but I could not find any 4 petals on mine.

That is indeed exciting Hurray! I went out and checked mine but I didn't see any that have 4 petals Hilarious!

Is the 4 petal far pink or red? The 5 petals is lighter pink.

Interesting, are all the flowers from the same plant have 4 petals ? or only that 1 flower is 4 petals.

I checked mine this morning, all of them have 5 petals..
If they look healthy, do nothing

Every one is checking their plants and counting petals. I too went and checked ," I realised I don't have arabicum" Thinking 😁
