Bend Deformer and Cloner Object Problem

Can anyone help me figure out what is happening here?
I am new to C4D.
I want to create an animation of a dancing alien flower. I have one layer of petals made with a cloner. When I add a bend deformer to the whole flower group, it blows apart the cloned petal layers. If I try to use a connect object on the petals, it seems to negate the cloner.
Here is the flower file: https://rhodes.box.com/s/ysfv7yy97kcq6scqkbajpxcjm6avrcnx

Here is a screen shot:


Thank you.

Change the Outside Petals cloner Object/Instance Mode to Instance from Render Instance. One of the limitations of the render instance is that is does not respond to deformers.

Good gravy, thank you. I was pulling my hair out.
