    This was a very amazing find. I personally dont own any varigated orchids but now I will think twice when I see one. BTW, Not all of us are bad Yug there are still some honest ones left. I sell plants out of a nursery and like to educate people on their plants. I have spread the orchid bug better with honesty than with out. But I know what you mean, many places even pot orchids so that you are set up to kill them with the thought that you will have to come back to buy more. I have learned the opposite to be true which is why so many people give up on orchids believing them to be "too hard". Its the orchid addicts that tend to come back to buy more . They light up when they come back to buy their second (and third, and forth....) because of the sense of accomplishment they feel to finally succeed!

    Glad to see a local from here Murray , I agree, don't worry so much about this. The tulips growers have been doing this to tulips for decades
