    But on looking at some other Shinonomes, the colour doesn't seem to be the same. Any ideas, fellow members?

    Thank you Ania, for helping me. I think the matching is very close. Sometimes we buy orchids in good faith with a 'name tag', only after the deal is done, 12 months later or more, orchid blooms and is not what you paid for. Very disheartening.

    Well, it is still a lovely dendrobium, Annette. Please don't be too disheartened. Just remember to buy from a different vendor in the future.

    cheers,
