Ahhhh... The great challenge of breeding for pinks -- how to draw the line 
between the pinkish orchids and flamingo pink. In my experience, the orchid 
pigments fade with age while the flamingo pink pigments persist.  If a flower 
becomes more pink with age, it's a keeper!  May not be worthy of 
introduction, but can still be good breeding stock.
