    Default Paph Delrosi in bloom

    I purchased this beautiful Delrosi in beginning bud. It is a lovely paph with another bud beginning to show color. It's parents are Paph Delenatil x Paph Rothschildianum. It is 6 inches across and the inside of the pouch is white with little lavender speckles.

    Spectacular! I've never seen a paph where the dorsal and ventral sepals were nearly equal-sized. Very striking!
