The first photo is a nice group shot. Followed by an individual shot of Shun-Fa Golden 'Double Lemon' x armeniacum 'Golden Emperor' AM/AOS. This plant is the fist one on the left on the group shot. This plant has been opened for a while now. Next is the exact same cross. This one appears on the right side of the group photo. And last but not least is Shun-Fa Golden '#5' x armeniacum 'Egg Custer'. This one is the middle paph in the group photo. I don't think this cross has been named, however all three plants are the same cross just with different parents. To view the images in full size just click the photo. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

It was registered back in 2013 as Harvey Man Hee Wong.
I have bloomed a few and there were vast differences among seedlings regarding plant size, patterns and colors of the leaves as well as flower size & quality.
I love that chunky one on the right. Also, the one in the middle has a nice balanced flower on a small plant with dark leaves.

I have kept only one to myself and that is from the same cross as your middle one, SFG #5 x armeniacum 'Egg Custer' out of Hilo Orchids.
Mine also has dark green leaves but they are much larger, which I don't like.
The flowers on the very first bloom (two years ago) was enormous, however, the subsequent two repeat blooms have been much smaller and the shape was of much lower quality. I'm keeping it for now since it grows and blooms well.
Some other seedlings of this hybrid (but from different breeding lines) were extremely slow to grow.
