    Default Gorgeous peloric phalaenopsis

    I went to an orchid exhibition last weekend at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, and fell in love... unfortunately, up until today I had no idea how to even refer to this type of phal, let alone know what cultivar it is and where I can find one like it. Anyway, I thought I would share, and if anyone else has a clue what it might be called, I would love to know.

    I hope you like it as much as me....

    That's really neat! Think it is one of the nicer pelorics I've seen.

    They can be pretty. Too bad they are messed up genetically and shouldn't be used for breeding. I can't seem to look past the deformaties.

    Wow, that's really weird-looking, I've never seen anything like that before. Quite cool although I'm not sure it's to my personal taste
