Here is the Paph. Maelstrom that I had posted about....one of the plants I won in the Ebay auction....the multigrowth plant in bud. Now Maelstrom is Armeni White x malipoense....and I honestly don't know how it would appear in any way different from Lynleigh koopowitz....as you can see in the photo, it looks exactly like Lynleigh Koopowitz...and as Norris Powell plant, it may very well be LK....not that I mind, as I know longer have that cross, and besides, this is better than any LK I have had....its not fragrant, but then again no LK I have had ever was fragrant. Incredibly tall stem too.....I have tried to find a pic of Maelstrom, but no luck yet....take care, Eric

very nice Eric!
as for fragrance, I've never been able to smell anything on ANY slipper.

Eric,

To paraphrase Norris: What does the label say?
Alternately: Yeah, but it's a really good one!

Regards,
Rick

Before I even read the post, I though 'He's posted a pic of LK'. Certainly does look like one. based on the length of the spike, mine will have months to go yet (my spike is only 2" tall yet)

For comparison, here's a pic of Paph. Maelstrom that I got from the internet. I think it's a display of Piping Rock Orchids in a show.

They sure look alike to me. Whatever it's name is, I like it very much.
