Default paph deperle



I love Deperles and have started to 'hone' my paphs into complexes and whites predominantly. I love them all but so many I have to start being choosy. Less plants but better plants is the goal. Instead of buying 3 small itty bitty seedlings I get one large full grown plant. I have much better time with the more established plants in my growing conditions which are more like survival techniques for Orchidaceae 101.
Deperles are all budding up this one has 3 showing. My deperla alba last year got 3rd place in the show and was on its last leg. Bloom fell off the sunday the show was over with a ribbon on a stem

I promise to have flowers for you and stop postn all these buds..



to get anything for a paph at a show and being a casual grower is IMO just awesome. The guys who own the paphs they are really good and grow some beauts. I was happy to squeeze in there with one.

Got more for ya coming up big boys

Nice job RJ! DePerle is one of my favorites.

If you like white flowers you need a nice niveum. They are small and have the prettiest white flowers with tiny maroon speckles. I passed up one with really good form last weekend and now I'm kicking myself.

I completely understand honing the collection. Been doing a lot of that myself lately.

That's a good looking plant. I'm just getting into paphs and I will probably take your recommendation and get one of these. I love that variegated foliage. I totally agree with you about buying mature orchids. I've bought cattleya seedlings that took over 4 years to bloom. Mature plants are well worth the extra money.

we have a few paph killers here but I think if they got one of these it would lead to a long paphiness .

thanks you all!!..

we get some blooms soon. there are a lot of deperle crosses using more awarded parents now. The plants are just coming out incredible. Bar keeps getting raised each time one is awarded. The elegant shape, translucence and sparkle of the crystalline flakes in the petals makes for great photos...Lehua Orchids and Graham Wood have some of the nicest ones Ive seen.
