    Here is a great example of two plants from the same grex bearing different flowers.
    Plant #1 has a very wide dorsal and synsepal, and its long petals hang freely, while plant #2 has narrower dorsal, holds its petals out more before they dangle.
    I am taking both for AOS judging this weekend.
    Both are Shin Yi's Pride... (Michael Koopowitz x rothschildianum)

    Apples or pears? They are both very nice... Hmmm, decisions, decisions, decisions...You forgot to mention the difference in lip colour - here I go for #2 and I also like the stance of the petals of #2 better... My ideal would probably be the colouring of lip and petal stance of #2, the size and form of the dorsal of #1...hard pressed, I think, I would end up weighing my hands down in favour of #2 :cool:

    Let's hear of the judging result of the AOS (bearing in mind the sometimes aesthetic idiosyncrasies or the bending to popular fads of the judges!)?

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    I prefer the presentation and size of dorsal on the single spike plant, but to be honest, it is hard to tell from the photos. I can see that you have tried to make the comparison easy by elevating the one plant, but I would need a better photo to know for sure. I suspect the single spike did better in judging than the other. Mike

    #2 is not as matured as #1. Give it some time to mature. The stance is better and more balanced. Hoping it will stay flat like the first.
    Good luck
