    Paph. Ma Belle (bellatulum '#3' X malipoense 'fragrant')
    The flower on this one is massive in proportion to the leaves. I have not been able to smell any fragrance but it did just open so i guess time will tell.Name:  1439902425992.jpg

    Hang on to that one. It's a very unique clone, not that I've seen a lot of Paph. Ma Belle in person. But even doing an image search will reveal just how unique it is. From the light color, to the petal stance / shape, it's really nice.

    The fragrance (or lack thereof) isn't surprising. Paph. malipoense is quite variable in terms of how fragrant it is, and how likely a particular clone is to produce fragrant offspring when hybridized. I think I have more non-fragrant or faintly scented mali hybrids than fragrant ones.
