    Thanks for the clue Yew Sung. I suspected so too. Didn't come with a label.

    cheers,

    Thank you Bruce. Checked out the Red Black but my orchid's even darker. The lighter flecks on the upper petals match but the lower petals (or sepals whatever) are much blacker on my plant. Anyway, may be an effect of more exposure to the sun.
    I also noticed that the Red Black's lip doesn't have a yellowish tint on both sides, while mine does.

    I think so too, just can't figure out which one. How many ROBERT DELIGHTS are there? Now I'm interested in the whole bunch.
