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.

1) There is always room for one more orchid

2a) See rule 1
3) When one has insufficient credit to obtain more
orchids, obtain more credit
