Default Rlc. Williette Wong 'The Best' AM/AOS

Another division from Chadwick and Son acquired around Mother's Day.

I was surprised with the red markings on the petals and sepals which are not seen on the usual photographs of Williette Wong. Furthermore, the eyes on the lip are less prominent than what I have seen on the usual photographs as well.

Regardless, it is still in bloom and beautiful. Everyone who comes over to the greenhouse makes a bee-line for this one.

I've raised and seen many Blc. Williette Wong 'The Best' but never one with the red markings like yours. The markings are quite attractive. Your plant is definitely a keeper. The ones that I have in my collection are like that pictured below. 'The Best' is to me one of the best yellows around. It is a frequent trophy winner at Shows in Hawaii. By the way, I know Williette Wong very well. She is always helping out the orchid societies on Oahu. She is a former president of the Honolulu Orchid Society.
