    I have not heard of an alba form of this species, which certainly makes a very lovely flower. It is not found in Malaysia is it Zain ? Not according to my books anyway - but the books are not always right !
    One of my books - the invaluable Baker & Baker - says that a warm growing variety ( D.f.gigantea, grows at low altitudes ( and hence warmer) in Vietnam and lowland India ,so your country might well be a possibility for that.

    After googling, some japanese website labelled this as Dendrobium formosum fma petaloid. It is unique, not only because of pure white but the lip is different.
