It certainly caught my eye.
    LOL! No, snapped with a cellphone, using flash. Strong overhead lights though that come in at an angle...maybe that's what you see?


    Roy--thanks for the picture!

    Only difference I see is the amount of yellow/orange in the base color. The lighting would be enough to influence that.

    It certainly is a jazzy orchid. But why Waianae ? All three of the parents always have been Cattleya, surely ?
    Orchidwiz thinks so, anyway. Maybe your supplier just wanted to list something different , that wouldn't be a first.

    My buds have just opened. The lip is very similar to Roy's but the color of the petals and sepals, unless the color matures to a yellow/orange, is quite different. Background color on mine is green right now.

    I'll start a new thread with my images.
