    do you use SuperThrive? I have hear to much use of the product can do unusual things to flowers. It is kinda cool thought.

    So how close is the nuculear power plant...just kidding.
    I have seen a few mutations in paphs. & phrags. where the plant had pouches where petals are supposed to be, plus the normal pouch. or a petal where the pouch was supposed to be, and no pouch. or a catt. that had what looked like 2 complete flowers "fused" together. cool pic.
    thanks,
    Matt
