Orchid -- "Moonlight Lady"

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

A close friend is moving away from Hawaii to live in the Washington D.C. area. He was kind enough to give this beautiful orchid to my family. According to the label it is a Sophrolaeliocattleya (slc) Ken Dream "Moonlight Lady." It is a unusual hybrid for which I could only find four matching "hits" on the internet.

Only one internet site showed a photo of a plant that appears quite different from mine. I suppose that hybrids can differ somewhat from plant to plant but the difference between these two is striking. If someone can tell me anything more specific about this orchid I would be grateful.
