My maxillaria seems to be starting to bloom now and this first flower came out and I started to think it looked weird. When I googled the orchid I saw that indeed the flower was missing something. It is missing the 3 bigger petals, the most outer ones. I was wondering if that is a normal thing that could happen.
Yes it could happen sometimes. Just yesterday a girl posted on FB orchid group a phalaenopsis flowered stem where one flower totally missed the label. Only one weird flower on a spike of 8 or 9.
