    An amazingly pure white - a pity about the shape, nowhere near as nice as the typical example of either parent. Personally I find fairrieanaum almost if not quite impossible to grow; and delenatii depends on whether you have one bred from the single plant which survived the 1922 (?) discovery- which take for ever to flower, or from the much more recent re-discovery which are said to be much faster.Thanks for showing !

    The way the petals hang down to either side reminds me of some of the dogs with big droopy ears.

    I love both Paph delenatii and Paph fairrieanum, so this orchid is a great mix! The album makes it interesting.

    cheers,
