    Default Lc. George Off 'Green Gold'

    Hello Orchid-Peeps,

    Beautiful orchid. My guess is that is has dowiana in its ancestry somewhere because of the veined lip. The flowers only lasted a few days; also must be due to the dowiana. First pic has a 99.9% color accuracy.

    As you surmised, C. dowiana scattered throughout the generations from 2 to 8 generations back, numerically 69.1%. Very nice.
