    I like the bellina shaped sepals. The color and the pelorism as well.

    Pelorics are like Marmite ;actually I do like Marmite, but others hate it ; never met anyone who was in between - love or hate, never a half-way..
    Pelorics I can do without - freaks of nature IMHO. But if you like them, then this is a good one, I'd think.
    Each to his taste !

    I am not really a big fan of pelorics Phalaenopsis but I do attracted to a complete pelorism (petals completely looked like the lip). However, the downside is that the column of complete pelorics sometimes degenerated - it did not produce pollinia. I think I do love/have pelorics.
    The only freak that is on my priority list is Phalaenopsis big lip/big foot type.

    The triangular look of the flower I find charming. Excellent coloring also.

    Not sure what grabbed me about this one. I do like pelorics I think although I realize they look strange and are mutated. I find the more I am into orchids the more my tastes are broadening. For a while I was very picky about the paphs that I acquired. I am now finding many that I originally wouldn't have given a thought to are on my wish list.
