Thanks. The photo colour is quite true to how it is in real life. It was in bloom when I bought it a year or more ago from our society's sale table. The flowers were on a longer stem and almost pendant and somewhat paler. I grow my orchids in a greenhouse that is heated to about 65F in the winter. I am pretty sure the person who sold it would have grown it a bit warmer. So as I have heard before, blooming in a cooler environment sometimes produces deeper colour. However this bloom may be a bit smaller, but I can't remember for sure.
