I wanted to get one, but never did.
It's interesting how the pink blush came through in the dorsal.
Perhaps vietnamense is stronger than delenatii in pushing the pink color and allowing the yellow gene of armeniacum to show as well?
I see it's slightly yellowish or cream, or is it just the photo?
What is it in person? white or cream? on my screen, I see it very cream with strong yellow cast especially the pouch and along the edge of the petals.

How small is small?
Is that 2inch diameter cup??

How far under the light bulb did you grow this? and how many? 2 5T HO??

Color is accurate. It's cream. With a pinkish cast at the centre. Flower's about 3 inches.

It is growing on my 2nd tier that has 4 t8's. Plant's probably 6" from the lights.

Absolutely lovely flower that appeals to my taste as well. I think it's
a wonderful first bloom dent and all.

"whoosh"????? Must the the sound of something going right over my
head?
