That one is spectacular. I think it needs to grow up a little more and it'll flatten out a little better. Some cupping is expected on a peloric cross like this. I don't think yours is too cupped to rule it out. Hopefully it'll have a longer stem the next time it blooms so the flowers aren't so crowded - especially since there will probably be more flowers than this time. The lip will probably also flatten out, but it has such wide segments and such great color that your points on form and color should be pretty high .

Thank you all again!

I will give judging a try the next time it blooms. Regardless of the outcome it should be a fun experience.

BTW, do any of you have tricks to improve the presentation of flowers for indoor grown orchids? I rotate my plants every few days (when I water them) so they don't grow in only one direction. I stop when the buds start the develop because in the past, when I did not, flowers got confused and some of them were upside down. However, the flowers now all point in one direction. Any suggestions to get a more natural presentation?
