    Your plant isn't the alba version!
    C. loddigesii alba is pure white with a yellow hue an the lip and throat.
    Today your plant should be already more pink than the posted image shows.
    After some days the flower changes to more pink.
    Your flower has an excellent shape. Not many C. loddigesii are as good as yours.

    Wow... I'm speechless, two people in one week telling me I have rare plants.. I don't know what to say! :-D I'm eager to see what response I get to the others I post down the line. That pic was after the bloom was three days old too so that's the actual color of it. Thanks for the info on it.

    How cool. this pic was of the three day old bloom that's why I assumed it was the alba version, It never got any darker.
