    Default Rlc (Potinara) Hawaiian Charisma 'Hawaii'

    Going through a bit of orchid-buying withdrawal lately, while waiting for some trades to finalize, I found this little mounted catt at a local farmer's market and needed to bring it home. The vendor kind of made a thing about it being mounted on genuine Japanese 'dragonwood'(?) I liked the colors and mild fragrance of this little lady.

    I am sorry to spoil your excitement but I see mild color break symptoms on the flower. Please quarantine this plant and get get tested.

    I noticed that when I first looked at it and looked at many of these blooms online. This being a splash-petal type Catt, I don't think this is a viral problem, but agree, precaution is much better than regret.

    I am not so much worried about the splash petals but with the lip and petal on the top. Also the black spots on the growths are not a good sign either.Even in pelorics there are no streaks on the outer tepals. The streaking pattern on the upper tepal is a very characteristic of either ORSV or heat shock.

    Bruce, I remember you posting a photo of this sp. a while back and I loved it then. I hope this little one turns out to just need some TLC to get back on the right track and there is no viral problem involved.
    Best,
    Tony
