Took a couple of photos yesterday, which illustrate what a lottery it is to buy seed grown plants.

(Rlc. Higher Multiplier 'Shocking Red' x Rlc. Jersey Summer 'SVO)
In peloric (splash petal) flowers, the petals mimic the lip. This first bloom seedling from Fred Clarke (Sunset Valley Orchids) came out with petals almost perfectly duplicating the lip. However, how I got a pastel colored offspring, when the pod parent has clonal name 'Shocking Red' is a borderline mystery.
Anyway, I will bloom it at least one more time to see what flower count it can produce on a mature plant.

Rhy. gigantea (alba x 'Cartoon')
When repotting my Rhy. giganteas 6-8 weeks ago, I discovered that one NBS plant was spiking (6 months out of season), so I had to leave that one alone. Now that the flowers have opened, I find that crossing an alba (normally recessive), with the heavily splotched 'Cartoon', came out with coloring very similar to the standard lightly speckled color form.
This one has slightly heavier speckling on the center line of the petals, otherwise it is indistinguishable from the tipo form. The size & shape of the flower is good though, so I will keep it to see what it can do when it grows up.

I'll give another example: siblings of Phalaenopsis Pylo's Fox from the same capsule.
