    Smile NoID Dendrobium - Multicolored blooms?

    Not sure if this could be possible but I have this one plant which I bought about a year ago (only been repotted once from the original plastic pot to this clay pot) which has spikes with different colored blooms. Does not seem to be two plants, as all the canes are attached to each other. Could it be some weird mutation or recessive gene?? Or should I just be happy that I got two plants for the price of one?? LOL

    There is always the possibility of a mutation in a gene affecting flower color, but this looks to me that the shape of the lip is also different. No matter how attached all the canes seem to be, I think this is most likely 2 plants that got potted up together as seedlings and have grown so intertwined you can't really tell. At least the colors don't clash too badly.
