    Beautiful! I LOVE cristata crosses. I believe the cream you see sometimes may have more to do with the environment, like temp or brighter light. I know that Encyclia profusa is that pale green color when they open, and they atay that way unless you expose the blooms to very bright light. Just a thought. Regardless, your Paki is awesome.

    so there is a scent, it has gotten a little stronger, but you still have to purposefully smell the flowers to get it. kind of like squirt soda maybe. i would still like to get the white version someday, but then i'd get one of these in any color they come in. i'm trying to get a nice collection of vandas that can take the cool winter weather here, and this one was at the top of the list, and never thought i'd get one. glad someone thought to remake this cross. now if only i can get someone to redo darwinara blue charm for me...

    this orchid is flowering again, for the last 2 weeks now. only 2 flowers again, no more even tried this time, it just grew 2. i am finding this common on the new re-cross of this orchid. lots of mentions on line of only 2 flowers at a time. the scent of 7-up or squirt citrus soda is stronger now. i love this orchid! i will start a new thread with the flower photos.
