Here is a bloom of my new Sky Diver. Wish I had a better quality camera so I could capture the color. It doesn't show here, but there are blue/lavendar streaks and spots. The bloom is very small--I wonder if they will get bigger with subsequent blooming?
The bloom is actually white. It looks yellowish in the pic, but is not. Yes, its an AV. I'm hoping the bloom will be larger when its opened completely. I hear Sky Diver can vary greatly in bloom color. That prompted me to get one, to see what color I got. The blooms are also held fairly high above the foliage. Here's a link to show you the diversity of color you can get with the blooms.
LOL, its remnants of the packing material that was used! Two sellers sent me plants in some kind of stuff that looks like fiberglass, but is not, because its soft. I am still having a heck of a time getting it off my plants, even though they get a warm bath with every watering. It won't brush off easily either. The plants bpsimpson sent me are the only ones that don't have it, and they didn't have that packing material in their boxes. So I'm HOPING its not powdery mildew!
