    I have four more coming in the mail this Friday and that should keep me for a while (hopefully).
    They are:
    Phal. stuartiana 'Sogo' HCC/AOS
    Paph. niveum
    Vasco. Viboon Velvet 'Puffy Cloud' AM/AOS and
    Odcdm. Tiger Crow 'Golden Gate' HCC/AOS

    Thank you so much for your kind words and I'll definitely post some pictures if I can get anyone of them to bloom!
    AAAHHH!!!!! You have a Paph. niveum, you lucky thing. Have you seen it bloom yet? I'm waiting impatiently for one I ordered from a specialist grower and won't have it until nearly June. Of course that's Yew Sung's (catttan) fault - you can see why if you read the thread from Member of the Year. Niveums are ethereally lovely.

    BTW - If you ever get near Atlanta, the Orchid Conservatory here is fabulous - AND the new Orchid show there is about to start this weekend - and run through early April. I'd be happy to get you more info if you like.

    I wish I could send the niveum 'Maura' to you, but as I have explained in previous posts it is almost impossible to send or receive plants, especially species in Malaysia unless you are a commercial nursery.BTW another of the same clone is blooming and now I have 2 'Mauras' blooming in my grow area, or should I say 'glow' area ? That's what those two do to the shade house!

    So sweet of you, my dear friend - in every way. I shall have to enjoy the "Paph. niveum Glow Show" from afar, which is very enjoyable indeed. I showed your photo to the grower who is going to send me one in a month or two - his bloom in June - and he is choosing one for me based on that. Of course, he realizes he can't compete with native collections grown over 25 years, but at least he knows the quality I want! Perhaps, someday, when my ship comes in, as they say, I will make my way to Malaysia and see you and all your fabulous orchids in person.... Well, I can dream, can't I???
