    Default Paphiopedilum hangianum legal info

    Hi all,
    So it has come to my understanding hangianum is now leagal in the US, but i have a few questions hopefully someone can answer.
    First even though hangianum is legal is it recognized for judging by the AOS?? Here is a link from the AOS website that was amended on April 20, 2015. Judging Legal and Illegal Plants
    Is this just an outdated webpage? Have any of you came across hangianum or its hybrids that have been awarded by the AOS? Id hate to spend soo much on a plant i cant show and win a potential award for.
    Second does anyone know the exact date hangianum became legal and if i were to buy one would the vendor have to provide documents?
    This hangianum stuff seems to be really confusing to me am i just looking into it to far? Lol
    Thanks in advance to anyone who can give me info on this Jeromy

    Thanks for the link. Did not know that such a rule existed for AOS judging.

    Paph. hangianum 'Pastel Alien' HCC/AOS (77 pts) May 2015 Hawaii

    Apparently the only AOS award for the species prior to September this year. I don't know if there have been more since. A handful of awards for hang hybrids as well in 2015.

    Ok so it is awardable, now the question is why is aos behind on updating the webpage.
    And im still wondering about papers, wondering if i need cities documents to prove where one came from. I dont have a hangianum yet, but i do have an Alois handlebauer (fanaticumxhangianum)

    Seems like the best thing to do is ask them. They have a contact page on their website.
