    Hi Peter, I have what I think is a mossiae'alba' which shows no colour at all - just pure white. I've had it 3 years and it flowers beautifully every year, Sheathing at the moment but will place pic when I can

    the only pure c.mossiae that i know exist is maruja from caracas, its totally albino, only a few people have seen the plant and its quite expensive in the thou, you can see a pic of it in carlo aulisi book/venezuelan cattleya.the problem with mossiae is that the petals are floppy,to get good one you have to know a honest collector.
