Dtps Queen Beer blossoms iridescent?

Recently I got a Dtps Queen Beer (3 spikes!) because the flowers are supposed to be iridescent. This glowing/shimmering/whatever doesn't show up in photos.

Do the flowers glow and shimmer? :)

I find that the color of the flowers is so intense that they do, indeed, almost seem to shimmer, especially in the right light. It's a beautiful display. Your 3 spikes will be a joy. Easy to grow and wants to spike and branch. Enjoy!

Thanks much. I was so hoping for that. Some time back, I had a Phal that sounds similar, but it was a cross a vendor made only once. It was a stunner, as you said, in certain lights.

Nice to know it branches, too.
