    very nice! I hope to bloom mine one day. Do you find that vegetatively, the alba is smaller than the normal colored variety?

    Actually I never seen the normal colored variety, I have one was told by vendor that its cordigera very huge pseudobulb but when bloom times was not cordigera but other species, from the orchids books that I have generally the pseudobulb is very huge as compare to alba one, I agree with you Ron.

    This plants from hot to warm area I suppose this species very hardy if normal variety can grow very big pseudobulb in your GH by right the alba shouldnt be a problem. Probably need to check the roots system like mine I got many species stunted and refuse to grow and noticed the root system gone due to cochroach,snails and other bugs.
