    Hey, wait a minute, I looked at the pic, then the commemts, and went back to the pic ( went round this course several times).
    Something wrong here ; duplicated lateral petals ? Can't be another flower behind this one.
    Sorry ; some people love peloric forms , flowers without lips, all kinds of "different" flowers. Not me. Two too many petals. For me it that detracts from what otherwise would be near perfection. Comes down from 95% to " I don't want to judge this one"...
    tell me I'm wrong ? And why ?

    Geoff, Could it be a fold in the edges of the two petals?

    I will pass that along to the grower (not me!). I'm in Ecuador right now. The plants are amazing.
