    Default Double bud on phal - phal frankenstein

    I decided to treat myself for promotion I got and bought another phal (NoID again, but that's all they sell in stores here). It has many branches with many unopened buds. After bring it home and repotting I noticed that it has double bud. I wonder if anybody else has something like that.

    I had a similar bud/flower on a Cymbidium last winter. It did open successfully although they did share some parts.

    Hi Steve,

    Each one of these two looks identical, no sharing parts.

    But this one, just now I found another "double" flower , does share some parts.
