    Yet, regardless of being spurless try to examine your alba too if it does possess a line inside the midlobe and that would result a backcrossed Euanthe sanderiana var. Alba.

    That is the practical look of judging a true Euanthe sanderiana (wild type or locally grown). That's why in competition entry of Euanthe, the judges will look after the midlobe if the plant does not contains any line in the middle. If they found out any differences, they will disqualify the entry as the result findings.

    Also, I also remember I was told by an orchid-breeder friend that the true native Euanthe has leaves that are somewhat a bit larger, more drooping and flops more easily than the laboratory bred Euanthes which have sturdier growth on its leaves and appear to be a bit more upright and rigid.

    I'm just speculating but I think your Sanderana could have been a resultant cross of an 'alba' variety with a regular variety. Thus you get a mixture of some of the 'alba' with the shades of brown from the regular variety. Still a Euanthe because of the cross between two different varieties of Euanthe but no longer a pure alba. Check for the absence of a spur and the line in the midlobe as mentioned by Derek.

    Thank you for all of your input guys (very informative) now that i'm more convinced that this isn't a true alba form.

    That's why I titled it "Vanda Sanderiana Alba?" because although it resembles a true sanderiana but i'm still in doubt if I can call it sanderiana alba.

    Another question, is Sanderiana Alba "Constance" or "Snowcup" can be a pure sanderiana alba also? I got keikis of both of them.

    This is a sib x between a V. sanderiana and a V. sanderiana alba. It's still a V. sanderiana but already a cultivar. I have seen many cultivars of V.sanderiana though sib cross and there are interesting results.
