    Cool Lc. White Spark 'Panda'

    As I type this I am near "giddy". I know it's silly to get so excited over a couple pretty flowers, but... This thing has nearly died twice! I repotted it twice before it went into this basket....and you can tell by the crappy name tag I just assumed the thing was going to die. Well...Tah Dah lol

    ...when it gets it's act together I hope all the petals will match. Only one petal kept it from being picture perfect. But honestly after everything I am just happy to get these two amazing flowers. It certainly is the poster child of orchids when it comes to patience!

    I have ordered online without any major problems except for one vendor from Brooklyn, that I would never order from again. I googled and I see what you mean. It is still Lc. White Spark but a bit more peloric (splash petal) than my google search

    Wow! That's amazing. That's exactly my cup of tea. The name sure doesn't seem to fit the orchid though. Good growing.

    These hybrids are mericloned and at times you will get a genetic variation from the process. I suspect that is what happened to yours.

    It's not the first time with this vendor. I'm guessing they buy a few hundred at a time or grow them from flask. Not that i'm unhappy...usually when you get a strange one they are a particularly nice variety.
