    Default Phal Melody

    Last year another person on this board posted pics of her (Meg25) Phal Melody. Mine just opened and I noticed a similarity to another flower that I had labeled 'Phal Wedding Promenade' but now that I look at all three, "I thinks I made a mistook!" What do all you think? The flower in the 1st pic is about 6 cm across while the flower in the 2nd is about 7.5 cm and the last two pics which are labeled Phal W P, have a different colored lip...it has some pink in it. I know flower size isn't the tie-breaker here, especially since the flower in the 1st pic is on a plant half the size of the 2nd pic.

    I vote for two different plants. The fading of the pink towards white on the first one definitely differentiates it from the WP.

    The placement of the sepals at the bottom are different, the spots are different and the lip coloration has pink in one while not in the other....two different plants. Although, and again you must remember genetics...even a 5'6 couple can have kids that are 6 foot tall. So maybe it's a different version of the same plant?? Also; I've found a million pink to lilic flowers with stripes and they all have different names due to different breeding. They use different flowers but come up with nearly the same cross, again due to differences that happen naturally in genetics.
