Re: no mutation compared with mutant (eg. due to mericloning of mericlone dna corruption).

At the moment, I don't think cultural difference will make one plant produce lip fringes having a toothed pattern (showing perhaps some digbyana influence) that run along the lip perimeter, while the same plant grown under other different conditions produces flowers having no traces of those lacey frilled toothed fringes.

All of the awarded plants look the same (their flowers that is) ... from different countries. None of the awarded plants flowers have very prominent toothed (serration) patterns along lip fringe .... and there is always a distinctive gap on each side where the lip meets the column region. This is referring to Rlc. Memoria Helen Brown 'Sweet Afton'.

A serious collector (or fan) of a particular plant would study photos of the 'original' very closely and would be unlikely to tell others that their plant is a particular cultivar - while knowing that the flower clearly looks nothing at all like the original plant's flower ..... looking nothing like every awarded plant (flower) of that cultivar.
