These Phal./Dtps. are NOIDs. One is mounted and looks to be a compact-size plant and the other in a mesh-basket, and looks to be a standard or semi-compact grower Please help with identification.

The color of the petals/sepals on the second one is closer to lime than yellow. The morning sun makes them look more yellow. The flowers on both are approximately 2 1/2-3" in diameter. The final picture shows the Dtps. Luchia 'Pink' flowers for size comparison. The Luchia has 4" flowers.

I don't have gray hair, I have wisdom-highlights. I must be very wise.

I tried to do a bit of image- googling, but couldn't come up with anything. Perhaps the Peloric (?) one is a bit reminiscent of a Baldan's Kaleidoscope, now mutated.

I think you may be right about it having a Baldan's Kaleidoscope background. I believe the other one has perhaps a Golden Peoker lineage. That's all I have been able to come up with.
