    Default Paph. Delphi PHOTO

    Registered in 1983, Paph. Delphi is the primary hybrid between delenatii and philippinense, producing delightful pink flowers reminiscent of the more famous grex Delrosi. Unlike Delrosi, however, which can be extremely difficult to bloom, Delphi tends to be free-blooming, albeit with slightly smaller flowers overall. It is a strong grower under a wide range of conditions, but prefers bright filtered light and intermediate temperatures.

    thanks all. it is a first bloom seedling. plant is about 15-17" across, but it doesn't look that big because the leaves are narrowish. blooming on a mature growth and a couple of small starts. I suppose that some clones might take a while to bloom, but I think most will bloom on single growths.
