    I can only say that for me here in South Florida my phaleanopsis finish blooming by April before the heat arrives. Nice big colorful bloom.

    You would call that a 'peloric' flower. Was it a normal flower when it was last in bloom?

    If so, as I understand it, can mean that it was due to environment and not genetic.

    It was normal when I bought it and all the other flowers look normal. So think it was the environment.
    Thanks for the praise
