    Post Lateral Peloric Phalaenopsis

    Hi all.

    About one year ago, I found interesting peloric phal. It do not looks like another peloric, which usualy have three lips. This phal have lip character on its sepal (only bottom half of each lateral sepal). It make the flower looks rounder with wider and overlapping lateral sepal. Each lateral sepal also have yellow callus on its center.

    From internet, I have found that this kind of peloric are rarely occure on Cymbidium and call "Lateral Peloric" or "Sepal Peloric" (dont know which one is correct). But I found no report about this peloric on Phalaenopsis.

    Very interesting flower, and well documented. How did you come across this phal, is it from a grower or from seedlings you already had?

    Very interesting Fahmi. This is the first time I have seen or even heard of this type of peloric form. The normal pelorics on phalaenopsis occur in the petals. I think this is really unique. I consider most peloric forms of phals as grotesque (except the peloric pulcherrima),but this is just my personal opinion. Your 'peloric sepal' is actually very pretty and seems to have enhanced the shape of the flower.

    Thanks for posting.

    Interesting! I, too, cannot recall seeing a peloric like this before. I also agree with Yew -- this type of peloric enhances the colored area normally only provided by the labellum. Thank you for sharing this, Fahmi.

    I've seen pics of this type of peloric in Cyms and Catts, but never in Phals. Very interesting breeding potential.

    Thanks all for your attention.

    @EMos : I 've got this plant from Jakarta. There are many plants of this clone, but only one plant shows this mutation. Unfortunately the shop keeper can't tell me the name of the clone. Anybody can help ?

    @PaphMadMan : I am agree with you for breeding potential of this Phal. I have try to selfing, and cross pollination (resiprocally). But so far no seed pod develop. I will try it again later.

    If this is a clone but is different in appearance from the original plant, then the old clonal name should not be used for it. If you can find out the name of the cross that still applies, but it should get its own clonal name.
