    Default Phal Baldan's Kaleidoscope

    I know lots of you have this plant. In fact I probably have 3 or 4 of them out in the GH because...well just because I have a hard time parting with any of the chids! Here, I present the usual and customary form and a cockelshell variety..... Oh and the last, Brother Sara Gold just had to have her pic taken, too! What a scene stealer!

    The phals out right now are so pretty! I love the last...it was a gift to me awhile back but as the roots were awful it died right after blooming. I'm glad to see yours so healthy and lovely!

    Oh, Orchid Guru Ron, you're asking simple-minded, usually brain-dead me!!!!!! I guess you could classify it as a semi-pelori....a "wana-be" but hasn't really developed the usual appearance of a true peloric....then again the definition, if memory serves me correctly...no comments here.... of a peloric is just something different than the usual presentation?????

    Great colors on those phals. I love Baldan's Kaleidoscope. Nice growing! The peloric one is really cool.

    Cheers,
