Paphiopedilum Avalon Pearl is delenatii x Avalon Mist. I purchased this particular plant 4 or 5 years ago from a grower who has downsizing. The plant had clearly bloomed before. So I had high hopes it would bloom again for me. This is the first time it has bloomed since I purchased it. I am not sure why it took so much time. Nor I am certain what changed this year to inspire it to bloom. Does anyone else have this hybrid or can provide insight? It grows like crazy. Maybe going forward it will bloom more regularly.
