    The yellow / pink NOID phal opened its first flower yesterday (no new pictures just yet). Yep - it's peloric. The color is just as intense as on the last bloom so i'm not complaining! I'll take a few pics to share once the rest of the flowers have opened.

    hmmm... ok, I wasn't a big Phal enthusiast... grow a couple of species but no hybrid bar one NOID which I have now killed (as of maybe 2/3 wks ago)... anyways, the point of all this is... these peloric flowers are THE BEST!!! The colours on them and the shape is something else! It's like a little tulip-y and a little iris-y, anyways, I think it's just great! I have never seen any here in Oz (Down Under not Dorothy) but if anybody does know where I can get em here, I would give em a big hug.. ok maybe I'll be just be very thankful! (oh and I'm on a coffee hype so don't mind the craziness).

    Cheers

    Thought some of you would like to see the 'Brother Apollo' I mentioned in my post above. Enjoy! I sure do. I don't care a bit if some consider it a reject.... most variation we see in the orchid world evolved due to these genetic "mutations". It is the beauty of it without a label. If we didn't have a preconceived notion of what a "phalaenopsis" is, we might approach it in a whole new light!

    They certainly are wonderfully weird! But wouldn't you keep wondering..."what's inside?"

    I don't know, but to me they are really beautiful! They seem to stand out in a crowd. Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Christopher do post the photo of the yellow/pink one when you get a chance. I find these so interesting.

    BTW, anyone with one of these try opening the bloom out flat to see if it would stay? I know on some phals, I have flipped back the bloom and it makes the flower flat and beautiful and doesn't hurt the bloom at all. I have never tried this with one this extreem. Hmmm...?

    Cheers!

    Default opening the blooms...

    Yeah, I tried that once and I couldn't get it to stay. I can say the color on the inside is fantastic, which is the only drawback to this bloom. I'll try to get a photo.

    Here is what this one looks like on this bloom cycle. It still has a few buds to open but it looks good so far!
