Finally, after years of waiting, my Paphiopedilum bellatulum is flowering.

This is one of my oldest Paphiopedilum of the subgenus Brachypetalum. I bought it in February 2017 and this is the first time that I managed to complete its flowering even though it has started numerous flower stalks since I grew it.

All my other Brachypetalum flower regularly but this one therefore seems particularly recalcitrant even if, otherwise, it grows without problem.

So it’s a big day for him and me! :cool:
