Found this in the back row yesterday. Was just muttering to myself about Violacea's being rare to bloom for me....once again showing the universes humor. Grown under an assortment of LED's. No scent yet.

It's not peloric - because petals don't quite look like lip.
I would see if the next flower is normal or distorted like this one.

Whatever the cause, that is one intriguing beasty! I've seen unusual things on first-bloomers before, but never seen a lip like that. In my case, one really oddball F3 plant gave two flowers in succession with unusual characteristics, but all flowers since then have been normal.
