    Thanks - yes, it is fragrant - a sort of floral/citrus - doesn't smell as good or as much as my phal. violacea or my sedirea japonica, though.

    I'm not 100% sure but I think 2 clones of Blc Mahina Yahiro namely the 'Ulii' and 'Mishima' have been awarded AM AOS. I have both clones but in my opinion, the 'Ulii' is superior both in form and colour.

    You're absolutely right, Yew. I haven't installed the newest edition of OrchidWiz because I'm having real trouble with the installation and have been over and over it with Alex Maximiano still with no results. Anyway, I also have AQPlus to install but just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    BUT OWiz 8.3 shows that Mr. Yahiro himself won an AM/AOS of 80 for the 'Ulii' clone in 1985, with a note in the description about the problem with the shape of the lip. Then 'Ulii' won TOGA 2nd place twice, the most recently being in 2006. 'Mishima' and 'Linwood' both have Am/AOS of 80 points, so the AOS, anyway, hasn't made any distinctions of one clone's superiority over the other (unless it's been very recent). The award photos show unusually flat-shaped versions of all the Mahina Yahiros, although other photos of it that Owiz includes show the more typical drooping posture. Of course, as always, the superiority of one bloom over another is so much in the hands of the grower. I've looked at all your photos of the Mahina Yahiro, and, as suspected, indeed, all show superior blooms - in fact superior to those in the award photos! I daresay that I have discovered that I am not a "floofy" person. I should be sticking to species catts and my comparably sleek paphs. That fragrance always gets me, though! My main complaint about paphs is their lack of fragrance - and I haven't run across a delenatii yet that truly has more than a slight whiff of scent.

    Thanks so much for the further info on Mahina Yahiro. I didn't know that there's also another awarded clone the 'Linwood' that you mentioned. I wish I had Orwiz. I've been fortunate with my Mahina Yahiro so far. Only the other day the vendor who sold me the 'Ulii' asked me whether I had any problems with misshapen blooms of 'Ulii' as he had complaints from a few customers re the plant.

    Talking of paphs, I took an inventory of my paphs (only started collecting them 4 years ago - not counting the niveums that I had collected myself many years ago) and found that I had 20 with only 3 hybrids. It is really difficult to find paph hybrids here. You may have read in another of my posts that a friend has just given me a NOID paph , a yellow Cochlopetalum type that looks very much like Paph primulinum. It is so lovely!

    It's fascinating, Yew, because species paphs are very difficult to get here - and NOIDs are a large part of it. 20 paphs! That's wonderful! I consider myself fortunate to have a few primary hybrids - I killed a delenatii soon after I started growing orchids. Today, Phillip and went on an orchid binge at our favorite nursery - there was a Lynleigh Koopowitz that I wanted badly, but the owner wouldn't sell it - it was gorgeous!!!! I came home with three catts - one NOId, one a C. maxima (alba), and one a C.walkeriana crossed with a C. purpurata var. werkhausen (must have a name, but have to look it up). And I bought another cool Paph - P. Zycleon, which a cross of rothschildianum and Pinocchio - so it's one quarter primulinum, one quarter glaucophyllum and half rothschildianum. It's already in full bloom, and I have to confess that I fell in love with it at first sight. Normally, I would not buy an orchid already in bloom, but I made an exception this time. I'll post photos as soon as I can.

    You're making me drool Maura. Paph Lynleigh Koopowitz - now that's a paph to die for. I googled for Paph Zycleon, having never seen one and the clone 'Hiroko' is gorgeous. Eagerly looking forward to pictures of your Zycleon. Congrats on your new primary catts. Yesterday visited a nursery of a friend and came home with 5 catts.( I had already resolved not to buy any more on this trip, but...... what's the point of making a resolution if you don't break it ).

    Next week my wife and I will be going up to to our apartment in the Cameron Highlands here for a fortnight or so. Will be making the rounds of the nurseries and hopefully visit a nursery that specialises in paphs - the only trouble is, the plants may not suit our lowland conditions.
