    Ok, Diane,

    LOL!!

    As I'm the challenger, you may choose the weird criteria! These humble (?) witnesses shall stand in judgement.

    Weird, but interesting. Are the deformed flowers producing any fragrance?

    Have you thought about cause, have you eg sprayed it with some pesticide or other type of stress?

    Dont judge it, nexxt year it might bloom with normal flowers again...

    No fragrance from the deformed flowers. More's the pity because the fragrance on this one is sooooo great.

    Piper - I think the weirdness criteria should be "Owners Weirdness" - in that case I am sure to win!!! LOL!

    Maybe this is the first time that I see a freaky catt with no lip. I have seen freaky phals before but not a catt!

    No fragrance so that means the odor organs of the flower might be located at the lip structure. Or the orchid is smart enough to know there is no chance in hell that the freaky flowers would get pollinated so it saves the energy by not advertising the blooms.

    Cheers. Hoa.
