    Looks like either a color shift due to temps or perhaps, as you suggest, different stages of the bloom. Very cool in any regard.

    At one point in time, there was in Belgium an introduction of a Phal. crossing that had Ph. bellina in the mix. This coloration occured as well, the flowers changing colours as they matured, so my guess is that this is the case here.

    I'm guessing different stages too. My pink Phal goes through different colors while developing too. Still, I saw a Phal that had two different kinds of flowers - some white, some pink! So anything is possible.
