    I have a very similar Peggy Ruth Carpenter , it has bloomed successfully over three years .The first two in my cool greenhouse where it was much deeper in colour but this year due to our unusually cool winters in the UK , i moved it to my intermediate greenhouse . This year it bloomed and was much lighter in colour , so i do think temperature plays a part in depth of colour markings , back to the cool greenhouse.

    No Andrea - your Tahoma Glacier is a typical Tahoma Glacier, and the starting point for this thread is a not too typical Peggy Ruth Carpenter, but I am sure that it is correctly named.
    The problem maybe is that most PRCs are basically pink spotted/barred etc. So many growers think that such colouring is a must. Sometimes even the tepals are pink flushed. But it is not a must, and I have collected several marked like yours, all PRC.
