Pleurothallis titan, orange form

orchidnickMay 5, 2011

I have a yellow Pleuro titan which is a fantastic plant making tons of new leaves and has been in bloom with multiple flowers continuously since October. One of my favorite Pleurothallids. At the San Diego show I accidentally picked up a Pleuro titan (orange form). I got all exited expecting great things.

Today the first flower opened. Orange? How about a washed out brown. Has anyone seen this and what is the usual color of the 'orange' type?

Talked to Andy, the originator of this plant of mine and was told that the color is an 'orangy-bronze'. Mystery solved, what to me looks like a washed out brown looks like an orangy bronze to others.

I really don't have a problem with it, just wanted to make sure there was not a tag mix-up.

PS Reminds me of the movie 'Ghost Busters' when Bill Murray turns to Aykroyd and says about his transformed love interest: "OK, so she's a dog".
