It's taken over 2 years since I bought the plant, but my Paph. Deperle is finally going to put on a show. :-) Three spikes, 6 buds in total. The first one has just opened and is a sizeable flower (9 cm across). Can't wait for the other buds to open!

Well worth the wait! Congratulations!
Very pretty one!!
Great job on blooming a lovely paph.
6 buds!!! great job and must be a very healthy plant! Look forward to seeing the plant in full bloom!
The name properly is Deperle - all one word. Its a hybrid between the successional and almost ever-blooming primulinum, and delanatii , which of course gives the pink colour. They will often give 4 flowers but never more than 2 good at any one time ( on one spike, that is). A nice orchid, one of my favourites.
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I can't edit the title anymore.
