Lc. Gold Digger (Lc. Red Gold x C. Warpaint) actually...

Most likely conditions. It isn't at all uncommon for flowers to be
slightly different in different years or in different collections.

As an example, I have about 100 Sc. Crystelle Smith 'B&K Orchids" which
bloom out different shades of pink/lavendar, even grown on the same
bench. In this case I think it is just a plant that is hypersensitive
to the environment, and the color is greatly affected by the environment
when the bud is developing.

Rob's Rules:
1) There is always room for one more orchid
2) There is always room for two more orchids
2a) See rule 1
3) When one has insufficient credit to obtain more
orchids, obtain more credit
