    The one on the left has nice form. Is the damage to the flower mechanical?

    Thanks Ron. It was damaged by thrips.
    In fact the one on the right is not so bad. If it grow better it will has better form flower. Here is its flower of last year.

    I prefer the overall flower form of the one on the left, but the lip pattern on the right hand one is far superior, IMO.

    Beautiful! The one on the right is my favorite. I like the veining on the lip and the yellow in the throat. The petals aren't quite as wide but that's OK, it has a nice shape.

    I was wondering as well - I can almost see what looks like color-break. But that's just a guess. They are very lovely indeed, nice shape and great growing!
