My Prince Edward of York has begun to bloom. Single growth, three flowers. Very exciting for me. However, it is apparent that the pouch on the first flower is malformed, sort've cast off to the side. The second flower looks normal, and the third isn't open enough to tell. The only thing I did was move the plant four or so inches forward to be more directly under my lights thinking that the spike would develop straighter. I can't think of anything else that would have caused this. I guess I've underestimated the effect that even slight lighting changes can have on developing buds. Will post picture(s) later when spike development is complete. Otherwise, I'm happy with my first PEOY. It's also my first long-sepalled orchid.
