Is this really Half & Half?

The color and shape of this flower is a little different than I was expecting from the photos others have posted of Half & Half. I received a mislabeled bulb in the same batch, so I am a bit paranoid about if this is really Half & Half. Any opinions?

As you can see, the scape is also very short. Do you think this is just because the bulb was reacting to the stress of being shipped? Will it happen again when it blooms?

Thanks for any opinions. :)

Yes, I'd definitely say that was Half & Half; just might be a little stressed. Here a picture of mine from last year and to me they look the same.


RE: Is this really Half & Half?

I agree with Donna, looks like a stressed half & half.
Are you growing in hydroton?

RE: Is this really Half & Half?

Thanks for the reassurance. Yes, I decided to try growing "semi hydroponic" style since some of the people here said they had good results.
