Colors look a bit off

My retusa blooms look darker, not as red, and my RHP is lighter then I expected.

Sometimes I think photos reflect lighting factors, growing environments also make a bloom look different. I am enjoying the view! Thanks for posting. ~ Mary

Beautiful! Those publicalyx blooms really look fresh. I agree they are nice pictures. :)

Thanks. The color in the pics is actually pretty true. The RHP might be a shade darker but not much. That's the first bloom on the RHP so I have nothing to compare it to. I was just expecting a darker bloom but the retusa has been blooming for a few years and the center is usually redder.

Congratulations on the Hoya blooms. I wonder if cooler temperatures were responsible for the deeper colour of the Hoya retusa corona? I guess you would expect the same from the Hoya pubicalyx, were they grown in the same conditions?

Same growing conditions and one is darker while the other is lighter. If anything I would have expected the retusa corona to also be lighter. My hoyas don't bloom that well to begin with so any flower is a nice surprise.
