Unusual strong color for this species. Warm grower from the Philippines flowers are short lived.

I like the orange/white combination - the plant looks sort of like my Neobenthamia gracilis, but that blooms from the apex of the growth.

Lovely plant. Pity, the blooms are short lived.
One of the reasons I like orchids is, the long blooming time.

Apparently the orange parts are bracts and not part of the flower. The entire flower is white. This is normal for this plant. Searching the web these bracts are usually pale yellow and I have seen 2 posts where they are bright yellow. I have seen no orange which is probably unusual.. Andy will look at the photos tomorrow and give his opinion which I will share. A few of the bracts are already beginning to turn pale yellow. In the meantime 2 more new growths have emerged, it is now working on 7 new leads. Good growth habit.

I did a web search again and did find an orange one at:

So I guess not totally unusual after all.

The flowers are already loosing their luster. Definitely short lived.

Flowers are falling off. Opened Sat, finished in 5 days, oh well, pretty while it lasted.
