    Default Paph Delophyllum ( delenatii x glaucophyllum )

    This is the first time this paph has bloome for me after 2 years of growing it. I am pleasantly surprised as I didn't think a delenatii cross would bloom in the lowlands but the glaucophyllum parent must have helped. The colour is a light pink.The bloom is not big, 3 1/2 inches across.

    Pretty Paph! Is it a sequential bloomer or just 2 blooms then done?

    I don't know as this a first time blooming for me. If it follows its glaucophyllum parent it should be a sequential bloomer.

    These tend to have 2-3 flowers per spike, rarely 4. Awarded forms are usually 4 inches or 3-4 flowers/buds or darker flowers. Still, this is pretty nice especially where delenatii crosses don't usually succeed, and will probably improve.
