    Default Phal NoID

    Another Phal. that I could not pass on. Anyone has any idea what it is? Looks like the flowers does not open all the way and one of the flowers has 2 lips and 8 petals, all other has 1 lip and 5 petals. The plant itself is not that big as you can see on pic #2.

    Thanks for Looking

    Whatever this is, it's obviously peloric.

    Yes, I agree. Did it open up any more since the photos?

    This a pic of a peloric that "looks" similar to yours. It is Phal Taipei Gold x Cassandra #2. So you might use this as a start and try to google parents and find something more like yours.

    I saw quite a number of abnormal flowers like this commonly on Phal equestris. I did ask how this thing happened. Some explanation may be during protocom state they bombarded with either gamma or alpha radiation to produce so call mutant where its altered the DNA sequences and resulting as beautiful flowers or bizarre appearance. Probably tetraploid and infertile.
