Few days before Christmas it happened....for the very first time a Paph. delenatii fma. vinicolor blossomed out in my collection. I've been growing this plant for almost 2 years now, from a young plant to FS. I like, though there may be better ones somewhere on the shelfs.
@Eric I've been still waiting for you delivery of bamboo sticks therefore I couldn't stake it.



Next photo is especially for Jens with the plant in toto.

What lovely dark color on the dunkle pouch. It looks nice even without the staking.

Have you noticed that the flower looks to have a pink glow when backlit?

Update January 2022
Within a month more than a year the new growth has grown to flowering size and a new flower opened. I couldn't have expected more....so I'm very pleased.
It's hard to catch the colours exactly in these dull winter days here in Germany.

Very nice. The pink speckling on the petals is pretty cool too. I'm happy to see the dorsal is staying relatively flat as it ages too.
