    Ma Belle has three of four buds open. I think by the time the last bud opens, the oldest flower will have fallen.

    Shun-Fa Golden is quite large at 18cm spread and emits a strong citrusy scent.

    Deperle started to give me three flowers per spike since last flowering. It was always two per spike before that.

    All three have been reliable bloomers for a few years. :)
    No repotting since 2014. I'm bad! but I hate repotting. haha

    And they're all amazing quality flowers too. I love your SFG especially.

    Agree. Where'd you get the SFG again?

    Yeah, I love that one. Considering both parents can get up to slightly on the large size, especially for an indoor grower like me, this plant is quite compact and has a huge flower. I have bloomed another plant of this same hybrid and while that plant was also around this size on its first bloom, it soon got bigger. and the flower was much smaller although it was round. and much less fragrant.

    I have two more SFG plants that are ready to spike any time and they are both larger than this plant.

    All very nice, but I particularly like the Ma Belle.

    Very nice, all of them. Ma Belle is much, much better than mine. A SFG has been added to the list :rolleyes:

    Kind regards, Jens

    Relarively yes. Each leaf is about 7 inch long and the flower is huge although you have one even larger! haha
    It has bloomed a few times and the plant size has stayed the same all these years unlike my other paphs I have whose size tend to increase as they age.
    I have two blooming size SFG. The flower better be huge and beautiful because the leaves are 9inch long on those guys! lol

    The grass is always greener. ;)
    I have one more Ma Belle, but it refuses to grow up. :(
    I have lots of seedlings of malipoense x brachy now that I might retire this guy.
    Plus, I have a couple of mature Mint Chocolate.
    I feel like I have had enough fun with this one.

    Do you happen to have a good sized division of your vigorous delenatii? I might want to swap if you are interested.
    Yours is fragrant, right?

    All very nice...but I agree with some previous speakers that the S-FG is a stunner.
