    Does it has pollinia at all?

    That is an interesting question Azizan. Let me investigate that.

    Interesting, but I don't seem able to avoid shuddering when see any peloric flowers.

    I liked this one Geoff because it's a species and the condition is not "in your face" with bright colors like a lot of the peloric hybrids you see being offered for sale.

    Azizan- I can't see any pollinia on my plant but I don't have sufficient magnification either. I posed the question to the vendor I secured it from and she advised me she has one but has never looked because she is not doing any breeding. She buys all her stock from Taiwan.

    Normally a fully peloric Phalaenopsis will have underdeveloped column and doesn't produce pollinia, thus it is completely sterile due to lack of those reproductive organs.
