Orchid Blue & pink flowering on living room table 1st January 2020 (Phalaenopsis)

Orchid Blue & pink flowering on living room table on New Year's Day 2020. Now it has flowered for a 2nd time this year but now the flowers are pure white with a little yellow in the interior!

Thanks, Amy! :) Though I don't mind at all! In fact I'd prefer the original colour (pure white with a little yellow in the centre).

It has just confirmed what I though at the beginning of the year - it's a blue colouring dye - it's not genetic as the is no blue gene in Orchids, nor for that matter, in roses! (The reason why they come out a whitewashed lavender or muddy "blue" & the reason I detest them!)

I liked the blue & pink colouring in the flowers but knew it must be artificial from the time it was given to us. Just that time has confirmed my suspicions!
