    That is really fun to see. I just got two different plants that are crosses from peloric parents and your pics make me even more excited to see what the blooms will look like!
    What a nice bloom.

    The phal has bloomed all its buds now. The interesting thing is that the phal seems uncertain about which type of flower it should have (in other words, the phal has different flowers on one spike). Enjoy the pic!...& also a question...



    See flower in the center? The petals seem more "peloric"--darker, more lip-shaped...for some reason. This plant is a first bloom seedling. Is it normal for young phals to be "unsettled" about which flower to bloom? Or do I have a weird phal with weird genetics?

    My peloric Phal shows a range of peloricness.
    Some partly peloric & some more so.
    Just have to wait for the next blooming to see if it,s cultral or genetic.
