I've been reading the forum a lot. I've come across information twice that is directly relevant to this thread. Since it has happened twice I decided to start posting here to keep a record. This may...

S.P., clearly,you are right. If someone flowers a lot of plants and takes a lot of picture, the person would definitely choose the best to represent them/their business.

I was hoping we'd find...

Roberta,

You're right, I've seen this too but didn't think of it until you mentioned it. One of my yellow Phals fades to beige when the flowers are open for a couple months. The attached photo...

Out of curiosity, did you get it shipped to you in the mail, or pick it out and take it home?
I live in the middle of nowhere in Mississippi, so the only place I can pick out flowers around here is...

This is my experience too. My Cattleya flowers tend to be smaller and more reflexed when grown and flowered indoors. When I've grow orchids indoors they didn't get the 10-20F diurnal temperature...

You are making a great point. I am hyper-aware of what you are pointing out. I go a step further. I don't purchase potted seedlings even for species. I don't have room to grow them up to flowering...

Hey Kim,
Is it safe to assume that the flowers developed/opened in hotter weather for the July bloom.

I had a Phalaenopsis that flowered indoors during the winter, then outdoors in the spring. I...

Just so there isn't a misunderstanding, the photos are all from the web. They're just examples.
Aside from that, thank you for your reply!

Here are two photos of Norman's Bay Low FCC/AOS. The first is off-color (too red). I suspect this is because it was photo...
