Is this yellow?

adenium1949July 13, 2014

Hello all,
Here is the first blooming of a seedling from Mr. Ko's cross 37 x 1, which is double yellow x double yellow. The bloom opened this morning (13th). As you can see it is single, and the pale colour is very difficult to capture in a photo. The picture I am posting comes closest to my eyes. This is the most "yellow" of this batch to date, others have been "off white". So what do you think, is it yellow? If the bloom changes significantly in the following days I will post further pictures. There are a few other seedlings from this batch as yet unflowered.

Here is a pic of the whole plant. All of these seedlings have identical form and are easy to identify amongst other crosses. They all have slender grey stems that have little variation in thickness along their length and very little in the way of caudex at this time.

It looks yellow on my calibrated monitor. Yay for Mr. Ko's pollinating skills and for your nurturing as well!

If you have a piece of Lego lying around, you can use that to kind of benchmark the colors on your photos. I am assuming, of course, that most of us know what Lego blue looks like, for example.

Brian, possibly the color will deepen with age or in a humid environment may be darker? Although your greenhouse is probably humid.
I think for what they call 'yellow', it is a yellow. So many Yellows that I have thought about getting, but they are seldom what the advertised photo's show.
Seems that holding the yellow color for any length of time is the toughest for them.
Beautiful bloom.

Looks like a yellow to me ...I've always had this trouble on distinguishing light yellows to dark yellows.

The picture that I will post is the yellowest that I've ever had.
*please excuse the picture was taken at night. I will bring in tonight and put it close to something yellow I have and repost the pic.
