Schlumbergera seedling no. 057

In the interest of coming up with more memorable names for the seedlings than just "number 25," "number 57," etc., I've been using the TinEye Multicolr[sic] Search Lab to look for things of the same color(s) to name them after.

In this particular case, the petals are (at least to a first approximation) #db665e, and the "tube" (there's got to be a better term for that) #f4dedb, which when paired with a sort of random amount of black (#000000) yielded multiple photos of fireworks, including a couple images from pyrotechnic displays at concerts. So seedling no. 57 is dubbed "Pyrotechnic."

Which is perhaps an exaggeration. But who'd want to live in a world where plants have to be named accurately?
