@australis I would like to upload at least one image of Fredclarkeara After Dark to the plant database. There are two entries for this plant, and the one that seems like the best match is this one:
Orchid (Fredclarkeara After Dark 'Sunset Valley Orchids')
However, Sunset Valley Orchids is an orchid venue, not a cultivar, so I am confused.
My photos are not great, but there is currently no image in the database that shows this plant in bloom, so I would like to upload at least one, your choice, if acceptable.

Hi Carol,

There's currently two different clones in the database for this grex - 'Sunset Valley Orchids' (which is actually a named clone - http://www.sunsetvalleyorchids...) and 'SVO Black Pearl'. From your photos, it looks like the 'Sunset Valley Orchids' clone might have been next to this one, actually.

In the case of your photos, it seems to be a different clone again - After Dark '#1'. As a result, I've created a new entry and added some of your photos to it.

The current profile image is that of Iris 'Volcanic Glow'.
