I might miss some of the photos that he emailed me 15 years ago ,
however here are some of Mr. Popow's delenatii for us to remember him by.
I will start with the alba, notice that their staminodes are different from each other, and one has a faint lavender tinted pouch .1 delenatii alba.JPG CIMG0260.JPG CIMG0672.JPG CIMG0690.JPG CIMG0802.JPG CIMG1023.JPG unbenannt55.jpg

now come his pink delenatii , notice the flower with gold staminode, that flower is different from the rest. Mr. Popow told me that he wants to do a selfing of that delenatii. I am not sure whether he did do it or not . So far to this day , I haven't seen any vendors offer that type of delenatii yet . CIMG0987.JPG CIMG0988.JPG CIMG0989.JPG CIMG1040.JPG delenatii.jpg

finally his red delenatii .
the orchid world lost a very special person, and many orchid collections, even botanical gardens' holdings , vendors and breeders' stud plants would be quite lacking without his contribution .1 delenatii vinicolor.JPG CIMG0139.JPG CIMG0210.JPG CIMG0213.JPG delenatii vinicolor.JPG Psph. delenatii var. vinicolor CIMG0022.jpg

They all are excepionally good flowers. 👌 The one with the golden staminode may be an interesting one...but I personally would prefer the flowers with the common staminode which has more contrast.
