That's what the tag says anyway. I think it's way to light in color to be correct any thoughts on the subject will be appreciated

Thanks

It's a nice one! It's lighter in color than what I'd expect ... BUT ....... have temps been on the warm side? I find some of them will darken as the bloom ages, too.

Yes, it would probably be a little darker if grown cooler. But, since I also tend to grow them warmer, like you, I sort of like the more muted tones. In the winter and fall my phrags tend to grow out a little darker than when they bloom in the spring and summer.

Well Thank You all It makes sense that flavum was probably used.I do like the flavum I didn't even think of that Shame on me, but with orchid friends like all of you I can't go wrong asking.

Correct Eric. This is not the usual red coloration for regular Living Fires. Must be a flava in the bessea gene pool.
