    I also think these may have been reclassified as Phalaenopsis? Can someone confirm or deny that? Both these plants were purchased as Doritis pulcherrima var. Champorensis, but one turned out to be peloric. I thought it was interesting to compare the two.

    I actually really enjoy these little flowers. I wasn't so impressed at first, but the "ethereal" colors really make for a very nice flower.
