I believe you are right...both of those plants were posted on the OSF a couple weeks ago. Something sounds fishy about this one to me....or is it just me.

It is Mahon's plant, but for what it's worth, I'm convinced that it is his plant and that it is what it claims to be. Kolopakingii is a good breeder, so I think I'm going to wait a couple of years for the prices to come down on these :)

Unfortunately, I'm jaded. Anything Mahon related is fishy to me at this point....a boy can cry wolf only so many times.

Then again, a short quick search turned up one in bloom at Peach State Orchids and Lien's posted one also. Maybe not so rare after all, just pricey. :)

Me too Heather...I've never met the boy but I can't stand him. Maybe that's a bad thing on my part but I could only listen to so much of his crap and self back-patting. I'd rather take advice from an educated vetran than some smart a$$ed 'I know more than everyone else' kid.

I think it is the same with me, first think it is true what we read, not thinking what may be behind.

Hien, and Nikolaus...

we should explain. There were some incidents at this forum and at the OSF forum regarding the person selling this plant, Patrick Mahon.

While this plant may be as advertised, many of us here witnessed many untruths that he told to us and so some of us are reticent to frankly, trust a word he says.

He is young, only 17, and while that should not discredit him, there have been many other things that he posted which we proved were not truthful in talking to people he claimed were his friends, so you may wish to take him with a grain of salt, so to speak. He is no longer a member here.

If you want more information, please PM me, or do a search for "mahon".

As far as I know these Kolo. albums were from a flask or flasks that came from ratcliff several years ago. I was clerking at theAtlanta Judging center when Bill of Peach state orchids brought in his and it recieved a CBR. I know he had a few of these and they were planned for some well known breeders...but that is just my understanding...it seems strange to hear of many of these turning up though???:rolleyes:
