    All what I can say is very pretty, so nice having this color in front of your house especially toward noon, the positive aura from pink color make our mine calm and cool.

    I had this same thought, Amey. Rather "glad" someone else (in this case you) mentioned it first. I feel like the "harbinger of doom" sometimes mentioned the "v" word.

    Thanks for the concern Pavel and Amey. This thrip problem seems to crop up now and then particularly with vandas and a few catts. When it first surfaced about 3 years ago, my first reaction was ' Virus'. Indeed I was quite convinced it was virus particularly when 2 of my favourite catts Lc Hsin Ying Skies and Otra Haw Yuan Bay kept on having bud blasts or deformed flowers or what looked like colour breaks and crinkled petals. Thanks to Amey and imidacloprid I have had perfect flowers from the affected plants. I think I should spray every 3 months since I am convinced that the overgrown compound of the house next door that has been unoccupied for the last 3 years is the source of most of the insect pest problems.

    Yes it is quite possible for other pest problems or even environmental stress to give rise to similar symptoms. For eg. High temperatures can cause a pattern similar to color break in Cattleyas.
