    Thank you all for the lovely comments and the willingness to play our little game ... Hope you guys had fun with it.

    The gurus of the Forum (Jason aka Jmoney and Pat aka Mahon) certainly did very well, they either got the name right or very close. Congrats to you too! Fren did not do too bad either, certainly he got the first half all right (I would expect that), and got the direction right for the multiflorals.

    1. Of course, it is LK, the favorite of almost everyone. Who would not like a paph that pretty with a fragrance?

    2. Paph. druryii

    3. Paph. niveum

    4. Paph. bellatulum

    5. This is when things start to get trickier. It is Paph. acmodontum x Paph. chamberlainianum. Who would expect people knowing that? Without the tag saying so, I would not know exactly what it is either. So a general guess like a cross with Cochlo species would do just fine!

    6. I would take both Jason's and Mahon's answers since both of them are correct. This plant was orinally labeled as a Paph. glanduliferum species. We all know about the confusion about the praestan complex. When it finally bloomed for the first time, the flowers looked just like the Paph. praestan that we know and love, and the flowers had very good form. So I would call this one, Paph. praestan (but Jason's answer is not wrong either!).

    7. It is indeed Paph. kolopakingii x Paph. randsii. I wonder if they have a name for this grex yet? If you have not seen this one, you might not come up with that answer since randsii is not used much in hybridization, I believe. Since Pat has that plant and his plant is in bloom, so naturally, he knew right away. This plant is not as stinky as you would imagine. I can tell that the fragrance is not a pleasant, like cat-pee I think, Pat, does yours smell like that? But the smell is not strong so there is hope for it yet!

    8. It is Paph. Deena Nichol (Paph. praestan x Paph. philippinense). This one is probably the hardest one to guess since we don't see it very often. But clearly Pat did see praestan influence, and since roebelenii was once considered as Paph. philippinense var. roebelenii, the flowers between two species are almost identical, so his answer is essentially correct. Jason's guess is Paph. Edna Ratcliffe (Paph. St. Within x Paph. praestan; Paph. St. Within = Paph. roth x Paph. philippinense). So his guess is also very close. The flowers of the Edna Ratcliff also seem highly similar to this one.

    9. The last set is certainly Paph. St. Within. The flowers are so pretty so I posted the pictures last but it is an easy one. We see this grex a lot.

    Thanks you all and enjoy my babbling once more ...
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Wonderful show, Hoa. Thanks. I appreciate you taking the time to explain the little differences and the crosses. Good info!

    Cheers,

    Well, I gained no points or credit for my guesses, but I did gift the cat-pee Paph to Doc Spock since I knew it was a rare cross, it was NBS, and the notes said it was fragrant (and I knew how much fragrance means to said Doc.) They never mentioned what fragrance it packed, LOL!

    Still, a striking flower! Mine likely wants more light and a bit more coddling (it's getting none right now).

    The good news is that my sandy hybrids are doing well and growing like weeds (the species seedling too). Sandys want lower light - half the light of most Paphs. More light will set them back. I have a sandy x Deena Nicol crossed with a Lady Isabel that's growing very well. That's a cool hybrid, because it crosses so many Coryo species: sanderianum, philippinense, glanduliferum, stonei, and rothschildianum. Truly a UN of Coryo species!

    Okay, that's my attempt trying to catch some meager bit of Doc Spock's spotlight! LOL!

    McHumble and busy!!!

    Hey McAuthor!
    Sorry for the omission with your guess!!! But I do appreciate your gift of the cat-pee paph!!! Hehheeehehe ... It was some gift, huh? And I still remember your gift of the chocolates when you visited California. I still have the box (Harbor Sweet - Handmade chocolates - Sweet Sloops, so delicious when I ate them all by myself ... heheheheee ...).

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks! No favorite huh?

    Hi Shaydra,
    So which one that you want?

    Now, the business at hand ... I still have one more paph in bloom that could represent a good challenge for this crowd! The game could be really easy if you have bloomed it, if not, well ... have some fun searching the web ... More paph fun, I hope!!! Ask questions away if you want some hints ...

    The first picture is the bloom when it first opened. The other two pictures is the bloom one week later!

    Cheers. Hoa.

    My guess would have to be Paphiopedilum Prince Edward of York... If it is, then I do like the not-so-stringy petals!

    Hi Pat!

    Great great guess! Unfortunately, it is not PEOY! But I do hope you like the blooms! The color is nice and the petals are not-so-stringy (as you said)!!!

    Cheers. Hoa.
