    Nothing, just peloric as mentioned above. Some of these I find really pretty because of how different they are.

    A while back I also wondered what was going on with the flowers on a Phal that I bought. I specifically bought it because it was different and I thought it was prettier than the rest. Yours is very beautiful too

    Peloric refers to more than just the cupping of the Petals over the lip, although this is the most common form. It includes other variations on the lip growth.

    This photo of Phal. Elizabeth Hayden is an AOS awarded orchid that is considered peloric because the lip spread to appear to be another Petal.

    I have owned seed crossings of this orchid in 8 different colors each more beautiful the the last.
