    Stunningly beautiful!! I love the second shot here. The sunlight and the color of the orchid look wonderful. It is starting to get cold here, so I am liking this sunny photo even more.

    Cheers,

    The white blotches on the petals. Color break virus? Be careful with this one.

    I've not seen a Catt with those harlequin type markings that wasn't. It's definately not a "normal" type marking in the Cattleya family.

    I'm afraid I have to agree with Jeff.

    Yes, it resembles mild colour break virus. But I hear it can sometime result from non viral reasons like nutrient/hormone deficiency or overdose. A test is must. I will try an find out an article which pointed out that a certain line of hybrids had this pattern without the virus, due to mottled patterning in one of the parents.

    Here is a short reference from the following article by AOS
    "In Cattleya plants, flower color break can be caused by ORSV or by drastic changes in temperature, and ORSV-infected Cymbidium can exhibit a mild mosaic that resembles nutrient deficiency."
