Ruschia uncinata is trying to open its petals, this is its second day. Don't you just love the big blousy blooms :???:

Very untidy flowers, especially at night. The sepals close but the petals don't.

As I've said, not the most flamboyant flowers but when there's a few open it makes up for it.

It looks like this is about as open as they're going to get.

I'm now questioning the ID of this plant supplied as Ruschia incinata

I'm now thinking more on the lines of Ruschia crassa.

Can anyone help?

Can we see a photo of the whole plant please?
Not that I'm sure it will help with the id (I personally wouldn't have a clue), but it would be good to see!
