(Note: These are “color-infused” white phalaenopsis orchids. Subsequent blooms will be white. Color infusion process is some secret patent. These orchids were purchased. For more discussion see: http://www.orchidboard.com/community/beginner-discussion/63444-gemstone-orchids.html) They certainly are dramatically beautiful, but I think the company should be more forthright about the dyeing process and the fact that subsequent blooms will be white. I had to google to find out about this orchid.
