    Left flower was produced in higher light levels after I replaced bulbs and increased wattage, right was flower produced in lower light.



    Left has darker color, shorter stem, opposite with right flower.

    Again, nicely done! You're getting to be as good as the Rattler! I'd be happy if mine would bloom, in addition to spreading.

    Aww Jim, I'm not that good. I just leave 'em alone most of the time. Do you flood yours? Mine likes that.

    Not as much as I should. I concentrate on flooding the sandersonii blue and longifolia, but the others.

    Nice! That same effect happens with orchids as well. If I bring an orchid in that just opened a few flowers and still has developing buds the later flowers are considerably smaller and lighter in color than the first ones to open. Its rather interesting how you can influence flower color that way. That reminds me to make a note to reduce light on a vanda I recently purchased. It had blue flowers when I bought it, and it rebloomed for me and these flowers are more purple. Too much light. I really wanted the blue flowers thats why I bought it!

    How come ya flood your longifolia? I thought they liked it a bit on the dryer side.

    JB_OrchidGuy, that's interesting. Maybe a lot of these cps that are claimed cultivars for their flowers are really just not getting enough light or vice versa.

    probably not... look at D. capensis "albino". there is no red anywhere on it. the only color on it is the light pink tentacle glands
