Both of these came from the same seed pot and couldn't be so different. I have had these for a couple of years while they settle down. The pink one is freer to flower, but both are slow to reproduce unfortunately. There are more bulbs in the cross that have not yet flowered so who knows what might pop out sometime. If something has not flowered in ten years I usually scrap them, but I am hanging on in the hope of something else from this cross.

Fantastic bloom. I like the contrast between the yellow lip and the sepals/petals, I was going to say "Peach" or "Coral", though it looks like you have used another Horticultural colour term "Salmon"(at least I think that's what it says on the label). and If so I agree.
Very nice indeed.

That shows real dedication :o

I love the colour on the second plant and these two pics really do show how different siblings can be.

.......and I prefer the colour of the first plant ;) , a good clear colour.
The second plant looks like its still making its mind up which colour to be, pink or yellow?...... but still a nice subtle colour too !
