I am fairly certain that it is not yellow. I is fully expanded today, and definitely white! The purple cast to the sepals/petals is from the plant light.

Maybe a pic in natural light without the influence of glow (haha aka grow) lighting?

I just weaseled it back into it's spot. You will have to wait until I pull them all out to water tomorrow, as I am too afraid of damaging the buds on the Cat next to it! My orchids are jigsaw puzzled together in what doubles as my sewing room.

Unfortunately this bloom looks nothing like WW.

Ask the seller what he thinks it may be because the shape is really nice.

Unfortunately I did not note the seller at the time, and ebay purchase history doesn't go back that far. This was an "accidental" orchid, being my 1st ebay plant purchase, and I fully expected to be outbid.

Beautiful bloom! Does look nothing like WW. Best to label it a NOID.

But interestingly about Cattleyas is that cloning can in fact not be 100% all the time. There is a percentage of failure in which the clone will deviate in color, in shape. Sometimes even looking more like one of the parents of the breeding. But! and sadly. Only the grower would be able to guarantee its breeding from blooming in table of flask mates.

Maybe. I will just enjoy it. The flower is HUGE and the plant is growing like a weed, so I should get multiple flowers next winter!
