I bought this delenatii from Alexej on Sept 2018.
He called it delenatii Prime Giant . I am not sure whether:
1) it is one of the types they breed
2) a delenatii with clonal name Prime Giant' x sibling (I believe this is what he meant)
3) delenatii 'Prime Giant' x self
This is first time blooming for the plant ( at the end of February) the photo was taken on March 2nd , after a week the spread is 9 cm . The bloom pretty much stays at the same shape , today is day 26th from the date of the photo, the bloom starts to lose shape and brown at the tips of the dorsal & petals

Alexej told me he is well and will start Popow Orchids in 2023. So great news!
Thanks for the info , Leslie, good to know he will resume the activity.
I wonder why there is no listing on Ebay as well as the website for a while.
Popow always has very good plants, I really miss looking at the listing

1) At any rate this is a very good P. delemnati. 👌
Thanks Rudolf, hopefully I can keep the plant in good shape , I have a second plant from the same compot , but it does not grow as well as this one, for some reason it is only 1/3 the size .

The leaves look HUGE!! Well grown, thanks for sharing.
yeah, the plant that Alexej carried were big, if he turned the pot 90 degree, the leaf span from tip to tip would be as wide as his body
