Size:  56.8 KB My Rhynchostylis Gigantea Alba in bloom but the last few buds are rather yellow in color. I know that they normally get whiter as soon as they open but this time they are nearly open and the color is still quiet yellow. could it be through the cold conditions we had recently? But i never had them out if temps were below 55F. anybody had that before? Just curious.

    The white ones are beautiful. I will be interested to hear others' thoughts on the yellow ones.
