    I continue to be suspicious that mine isn't a Nanboh Pixy, and this development doesn't help. (The plant was marked only "Bard. 'Cherry Moon', and I assumed it was Bard. Nanboh Pixy 'Cherry Moon', since there is an awarded (HCC 77pt) clone of Nanboh Pixy named 'Cherry Moon') Looks like I'm going to have to give the grower a call and see what's up.

    To confuse matters further, Carmela Orchids is selling a "Bard. Nambo Pixy 'Cherry Moon'" [sic], which it lists with a different parentage: Bark. Cyclotella x Bard. Terusan.

    Grr. Well, I'll silently fume about all this. On the bright side, it's a cheery happy plant!
    I don't know how old this thread is or if your question was resolved about Nanboh Pixie but I know that Barkeria scandens has an "aka" which is Barkeria cyclotella.

    I just bought two plants (2/2006) and they are the 'Volacano Queen' clone. The place I bought them from claims that this clone is fragrant but the blossoms on the plants were so near death when I got them that the fragrance (if any) was long gone.

    I know that there is one species of Barkeria which is fragrant but don't know about the others. I thought I found one reference to scandens/cyclotella being fragrant but can't find the reference on the net again.

    Did your plant or plants have any fragrance?

    Sue, you didn't tell me that the baby you gave me would turn into a monster!!! Oh well, I really like the blooms. Mine seem to be more hot pink than your picture shows. Maybe a temp difference when they were forming? Mine were at 75 degrees in the day time and 65 at night. I posted a picture in the "Orchids of other genera in bloom" section. Thanks again.

    Bill – thanks for the info. It clears up one part of the puzzle. I actually had forgotten about this issue entirely, but I looked into it again, and I'm comfortable now just calling it Nanboh Pixy – I read somewhere that there was a single firm in SE Asia that meristemmed the plant, and several different distributors and retailers in the U.S. all got it from the same place, spelled in different ways, labeled strangely, and so forth. Since I know this now, and since 'Cherry Moon' is one of the most common names given to the clone of Nanboh Pixy, I'm considering the issue solved. I'm not sure I ever checked for fragrance.

    Shalene – I told you it would get bigger! Maybe I didn't mention exactly how big. The parent plant is up to 4', including the inflorescence, with the "reed"-stem about maybe 1.5cm in diameter. So it's a little husky. I should have noted the number of blooms – had to be at least 20. Plus, it'll branch and rebloom. Last year it had blooms straight until summer . . . and last year the canes were only around .6cm in diameter.

    I love the blooms and I have an entire basement to fill anyway!!! We'll miss you at the show this weekend.
