    Another unique bloom. Sadly, the petals are unable to open fully. The spike is too thin to support the blooms on its own therefore some kind of external support is required to avoid from the spike snapping.

    I know Pelorics aren't desirable for show, but they're really rather beautiful

    I sure wouldn't throw out the plant - peloric or not, they are beautiful flowers. Thanks for sharing these.

    I always find peloric orchids so interesting. I know they are supposedly mutated and less desireable, but some of these (like this one) are so pretty. I wish this one was open more, but I guess that is part of its issue.

    Cheers,

    Maybe they should begin to have a special division just for peloric flowers at the shows?? I have seen one in particular, at a local nursery, that deserves an award it's so lovely. It blooms exactly the same every time.
