    Default Lc. Cariad's Mini-Quinee 'Angel Kiss'

    This seem's to be a very popular orchid and with good reason. Very hard to get the colour right though! I took 30-40 pictures yesterday. Most made the flower look as thought it had been dye injected. My wife finally came close with that even if a bit blurry. Just got this in April and it already need re-potting.

    Did you know that digital photography can only produce 256 distinct colour shades ? This is a matter of science and mathematics ( the final colour comes from the 8 bits used - even the Nikon 14 bit, comes down to 8 at the colour stage. You just cannot beat it, all tou can do is bang your head against a brick wall trying to do better. And then think of this, unless we both calibrate our monitors to the same standard, what you have produced will look different on my screen anyway! Time was, when I spent far roo much time on that stuff, and then realised that whilst I was doing rhat, I was neglecting my plants.
    But yes, I agree, my plant of this lovely grexis bluer than your pic, although it is a subtle blue with a pink hint - at least to my eyes, and I have not een mentioned that complication - different physiognomies.....

    I have this one, but it's a tiny little baby orchid. It's probably going to be a while until it blooms.

    They bloom at quite a small size. This one is in a 3" pot. I bought it in bloom in a 2".
