    Default Phalaenopsis Yr Pin Kin Ken

    Here are two cultivars of the same cross, P. Yr Pin Kin Ken. I like both of the flowers. Anyone have a preference of one over the other?

    I can appreciate what's going on in picture 1, but to me, aesthetically speaking, it looks too much like a yellow Phal with a bad rash.

    (I probably shouldn't say things like that, but...)

    I prefer the second one. I never like Phals with those big and uneven spots, they don't really look appealing to me.

    Oh dear,

    I love the big uneven spotting. I have to admit, the one on the right looks a bit like a puke splash, but it's closer to the big spotting that I love with harlequins.

    (I have one about to open on a first bloom. I guess it's only fair to allow you all to declare mine a puke splash if you feel so inclined, but I'm anxiously optimistic!)

    Both are nice, but I like the second one better. Spots are more "even".

    I like both of them. They each appeal, in different ways. I'm not sure I would have recognized them as being the same cross, though!
    Cheers,
