Default Paph Magic Lantern

It's celebration time in Jennyfleur towers - I've been waiting 4 years for this little one to give me a flower and at last, ta da!

I love paph delenatii and it's crosses and this one is no different, I simply can't stop looking at it!

I got a small seedling of this, back in March. It's about the size of your smallest growth on your plant. I think I have a long ways to go before I see blooms, so I'll have to enjoy yours for now. Such a pretty flower. Congrats! Great growing!

Wonder if this was made with delenatii f alba? Magic Lantern is usually more pink. I really like it. The veining on the petals really stands out.

Those are my principles and if you don't like them......I have others.

This has very light coloration for a Magic Lantern, but the form and size are very good and the plant looks very healthy as well. Way to go!

Thanks everyone Yes, I had noticed it looks a bit more pale compared to some I've seen online, but, at the same time, there does seem to be so much variation about!
