    Default Phal Sweet Memory

    This has got a scent, not too strong and quite nice. I shall see if it's stronger in the morning though.

    The plant also has a basal keiki, not sure how I managed to get the one with a keiki, but I'm not complaining. Now I just have to work out how I will be able to disentangle it from the mother plant when it's got it's own roots.

    I'm also not sure whether to take this to work to adorn my desk, or to enjoy it at home.

    These are great! The lips are fantastic, really velvety and almost fluorescent. Mine is turning into a right fatty though, it's growing some enormous leaves!

    Default I blame my mother.....

    Right, well, thank you all very much for your nice comments. Hoa! So nice to see you again, well hear from you....

    Anyway, my mum decided she wanted to go to the Orchid show too, so obviously I had to go back again today to keep her company. This obviously meant that I had to take some more cash with me, because there was this plant I saw yesterday that I really liked and I might want to get....

    dangerous words....

    The upshot was I found some more REALLY nice plants including a couple of peloric phals, one of which was this one which is a Liodoro. On using a well known search engine - will have to check with our forum leader if we can name check them - it appears that Liodoro is a named clone of Sweet Memory, but the pelorism was so cool I just had to have it. Bizarrely enough, it was the only peloric one, so I don't know if it's a stable pelorism, or if I shall only get to enjoy it on this flowering.

    The petals are quite reflexed, it's not actually the picture that has been stretched out. It probably didn't get helped by sitting in tight plastic wrapping in a coffee shop whilst I had a few cuppas with a couple of very nice men I just happened to meet today...

    Sorry the last one's a bit fuzzy.

    Hi Kerry,
    funny, as I happen to have this same fragrant orchid, which is currently blooming. I love the smell and the colours of the quite large flowers.

    They are both pretty. Do any pelorics get awarded or can they not enter? Just curious.

    I think that as peloric orchids are technically mutations, sometimes at a chromosomal level, that they are not considered as they are "wrong". I could be wrong, it's worth seeing what other people think or actually know. It can be a shame as some pelorics I have seen are fantastic to look at. They are not everyone's cup of tea though.
