    I have a light peach-colored phalaenopsis that I will post pics of when it blooms. I love the subtle "art-shade" colors like this.

    Zainal it is not genetic engineering, but line breeding. You carefully select individuals with the characters you like and keep crossing them for many generations, selecting only the individuals which keep the selected characteristic and enhance it. For eg. the normal R. gigantea has spots, you could create a spot less gigantea theoretically just by selecting two individuals with less than normal spots cross them, among their offspring again select flower with fewer spots and repeat this for many generations, finally you will have a spotless variety. I think the solid red variety of R. gigantea var rubrum is also sometimes referred to as the 'Sagarik' strain after Prof. Sagarik who bred it by linebreeding.
    Some years ago, when the Asia Pacific Conference was held in Chiangmai, I talked to a local guy, who was at that time an Assistant Prof. at one of their Universities, and who had an orchid nursery as a side-line. I saw a whole growing space - shade-house full of the dark red strain, all coming into flower, and the owner/Asst.Prof, told me that he had been a student of Sagarik, and that Sagarik had found a single plant of the dark red strain growing wild, collected it, selfed it, and all the dark red ones were its progeny. I came across my pictures of them, just a week or two ago, when preparing a lecture I am giving early next year.

    Geoff, that is the original "Sagarik Strain' that Amey referred to. The vendor who got me the 'Orange' strain in the first post also got it from one of Sagarik's ex-students in Chiengmai and informed me that this particular plant( she could only obtain 2 plants, and only because the owner was a personal friend) is the original 'Orange' in the 'orange' line breeding programme. In my discussion with the vendor re the epithet 'Orange' we concluded the colour referred to the colour of the Thai orange, which has green skin, even when ripe, and the flesh, a light peach colour. So 'orange' here differs from the colour of the Mediterranean orange. I also have a 'blue' gigantea which has yet to bloom and an offshoot from a wild collected gigantea which is reputed to have leaves as big as the Vandopsis gigantea. Only time will tell whether the latter two will turn out as promised.
