It emerged from a batch of seedlings which were supposed to be a white spotted form but with the usual white flowers, i think it's rather nice. Apologies for the dingy photo, it was taken early evening in late september.

Hey Anja, thanks for the suggestion but i'm not sure it's that similar, mine appears to be closer to green goddess but with white spots spreading into the green stained area.

Is it mentioned anywhere whether 'grace' has white spotted leaves or not?

This flower was produced in december during some rather cold weather so it never quite opened fully.

The plant i have as 'green goddess' doesn't have white spots and its leaves and flowers are no larger than the normal form of aethiopica.
The one pictured above has somewhat larger leaves than normal and these are speckled with white, similar to http://www.plantdelights.com/Catalog/Cu ... 03695.html
