Peloric ?

This is a discussion on Peloric ? within the General Orchid Culture forums, part of the Orchid Culture category; I love both of them, especially the first. More Butterfly than moth....

    Thanks for this great thread. It's really quite informative. Never knew about the peloric genetics.

    This is all new to me too! I had never heard of peloric.

    I also have a Phal. Baldan's Kaleidoscope 'Golden Treasure' AM/AOS

    Would this phal. be considered peloric as well?

    That is completely open, or at least for this Phal. Brother Digger which is a mericlone.

    Can a den. be peloric?

    I'm not sure how obvious it is in this photo, but the petals don't seem to open completely. You can see it best in the bloom on the bottom left.

    I just read that if "some" conditions get corrected these can bloom normally. I also read an opinion that once it has a peloric condition(?) it will always have it.

    Your Brother Digger is indeed, peloric. I don't know about the dend.

    Thanks Diane.

    After reading, it's obvious that the Phal. Brother Digger is peloric, but I don't see the abnormality of the phal . Baldan's Kaleidoscope 'Golden Treasure' AM/AOS. This seems to be a Very common peloric hybrid from all the references across the web.

    I have a Baldans as well, and it is perfectly normal, just like yours. I guess it is not uncommon for some to show a peloric tendency, but most I have see are normal.

    Mine look normal?
    That's a relief. I spent most of yesterday afternoon staring at it trying to figure out how it was different from all my other Phals. Now, after a good night sleep.... I can see what is different from the original posters. It's the petals and not the lip... Exactly like my Phal. Brother Digger, but not as drastic...

    Coffee is good for the brain!
    Thanks,

    These plants have been mericloned to death--so it doesn't surprise me that there are peloric forms.
