    Heather, as requested here is a photo of my Paphiopedilum philippinense, a light yellow form, not the regular dark colored one. LS is 13" and close to blooming size. You like?

    I suppose this is what is called the "Alba" form in the EU .

    Very very striking blooms(& so is the price).

    Here anyway, there are two, actually, philippinense var. album and var. aureum. Pete's is the latter, which should be more yellow, at least in the pouch and maybe twirley petals. However, this actual plant will likely be a lighter creamy yellow than bright yellow. The album variety looks more green (think key lime pie) to me in petals and pouch. I guess we'll see for sure when it blooms!

    (Hope you don't mind me taking that one, Peter!)

    Hm, yes, well you are right, that does look yellow. But, if you look at this one, I think it more green, in a key lime way - just wait, I have a link to that too! (love to combine two obsessions whenever possible!)

    Album

    You should hunt key lime pie down - very tastey, and nicer, more tart, than lemon meringue, in my opinion...I don't know that this will help you tell the diff - key limes inside more like aureum, persian inside more "lime" green...(not the first time this week I've had this discusssion! LOL! Now I actually am staring at a Persian lime...this was a good excuse for a gin and tonic! )

    Key Lime vs. Persian Lime

    Perhaps a Floridian, could weigh in here?

    They may be different , it,s hard to tell from photos(especially since i,m a newbie).The thing is the nomenclature for Paphs is different this side of the pond for some plants & i sometimes have to do a bit of research to find the same plants that are mentioned.

    For instance.
    Paph Topperi(EU) is commomly called Paphiopedilum kolopakingii (var 'Topperi')
    in the US.

    I know, it is really really hard in some photos to tell the difference! I had to really hunt around to find a couple that looked really different than the greener album. Then, you throw in the viewer's perception of color, which may be different from another's. Then, you throw in roebelinii... - well that just about made me crazy! LOL! Is it a phil? Is it a roeb? Is it green vs. yellow vs. key lime pie?

    Sigh....at any rate I guess we'll see when it blooms!
    Shall we take bets?
