    Default Lost tag

    I lost my tag and thought this was a skinneri by the looks of the flowers but my pseudo bulbs are thicker than the ones I have seen. This plant is a fast grower too and it's also white with almost no color...maybe a pale yellow on the lip. Could this be an Alba form of bowringiana?

    Beautiful flowers and a good looking plant! No help with the ID though. Isn't bowringiana a taller, leggier plant?
