    You're as good with the camera as you are with the orchids. What lovely, soft colors in this one.

    Hi Paph,
    - Fine photos, congratulations !
    - I found that the problem with this variety is that the color orange is fading over the time.
    - Have you noticed that too?
    Cheers,

    Yes Daniel, I have noticed that and you're absolutely right! This intense orange color is just the first day after the bud is opened and maybe a day after too, then the flowers lost intense orange color and becomes more pinky.
