Would it be possible for you to upload the unprocessed version of this photo? This looks so unusual. I've never seen one anything like this. I tip my hat to you.

Lindsey, this is so unlike all of the others in that plant group. How is it being grown? Any idea why the color is so bright? I'd love to know how to grow it like that!

Honestly I really have no idea! Haha. I have it growing under my plant light. It seems to like it, but it's becoming a little stretched out. I'm considering chopping it and replanting it, but I haven't always had the best success with that (I'm better with water propagation). I'm just afraid to cut it because I don't want to lose it! It's so beautiful.

With a plant that special, leave it alone. It would be sad to lose it.

@ljones26 I noticed your photo in the NGA weekly newsletter a few months ago, and used it for reference in this drawing. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks everyone, I'm glad I came back to share the final result!

Sometimes I wish I had gone into scientific illustration for a profession, I love all of the fine details. And of course, the beautiful source material.
