I have no idea.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

I have a question.  :oooh-me!:

A while back someone gave me orchids, pink/purple. New flowers came out but they are white.
What happened?  :headscratch:

If I had to guess, it's probably a white orchid which had been dyed.

I'm not orchid expert, but it seems it's common for blue orchids to have undergone this dying process to get their colour. Maybe in the case of your pink/purple it's the same? :shrug:

That's the same answer I gave.  :snicker:

I think you're right. I gave it A LOT more sun than before.

Why would they do that!?  :eyebrow:
That's not right.
Thank you for the info, next time, I will ask if they have undergone this dying process. Good to know.

found this

Bringing a new orchid home from the store is fun. We are attracted to the beautiful colors and/or patterns on the flowers. But sometimes, after the newest buds develop in our homes, the newest flowers on the bloom spike don't look like the others. How can this be? There are a variety of reasons behind changes in color but rest assured the plant is usually perfectly healthy. In the case shown, the newest flower is a shade of yellow where all other blooms on the spike are nearly white. The change in color is likely due to differences in light and temperature between the environment it was grown in and its new environment inside the home. In this case lower light likely lead to deeper color saturation.

Mags, the person who gave you Orchids, is surely someone who likes you.

Here are some virtual orchids 'cause I like you too.

Awwww. That's so sweet!  :hug:

Thank you.

Yes, my man gave me the Orchids. We've been having problems, and one day he brought me the Orchids and said:

"This plant represents my heart, please take good care of it."

I not only took good care of it, I also made it bloom.   :grin:
