    That is very odd-but the color on the patterens of the petals is intense and beautiful!

    Bruce said it - some people think peloric phals are genetic mistakes, but there are a growing number of people who seek them out. I had one last year that I really loved (and, unfortunately, killed) and Amey (Halloamey) explained it to me in a way I could understand.

    Amey explained it to all of us too in a helpful article: http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...-pelorics.html Check it out, Alex, if you haven't already.
