    The usual pale bluish flowers are lovely, but this alba is ethereal. It seems like a very full form for the flower as well. I don't think I have ever heard this species described as easy before, so your climate and care must be perfect for it.

    I agree with you even in the wild they are semi submerged by flooding river in natural habitat only can see the flowers. Most of my friends they dont have any problem to flowers this wonderful species and propagated by cutting the pseudobulb. Maybe our luck that they acclimatized in our atmosphere.

    Very nice.. I killed 2 plants of the normal form before I figured out the correct culture for this species. Have one growing indoors now, did attempt to spike once but it broke.
