Cyrtanthus falcatus—green flowers

It's  a very attractive flower.
I have seen the same plant display flower color variation from year to year.
I can't say for sure but I would imagine growing conditions such as temperature, amount of and intensity of sunlight and minerals available would effect the color of flowers.
Just a cursory look at images on the net show a wide color variation.
This one from SANBI looks much like yours:

Subject: [pbs] Cyrtanthus falcatus—green flowers

I have finally flowered a Cyrtanthus falcatus that I purchased in 2014, and
I am surprised by the color.  Flowers are green with only a very thin
picotee edge of color.  There is a somewhat similar picture by Mary Sue
Ittner on the wiki, but my plant has even less color.  Is this a common
color variant, or is the lack of color perhaps due to growing conditions?

Photo attached, I hope.
