This is a pretty easy grower (at least for me) and a long time bloomer.

Is this normal colour saturation for it? I've been considering it for a long time. It's nice to see that it's not washed out looking!

Did this one motivate Little Richard to make 'Long Tall Sally?

Tne pictue was taken without a flash or additional lighting. So this is the true color for mine. But it is the only one I have really observed.

I bought it from Porter's orchids last March. It has bloomed at least three time since then.

Nick, I mssed your comment. This one sure could have inspired Long Tall Sally. The height of this inflorescence is what will lead to this one on the member's sale table or the exchange forum.
