    First bloom. Sorry about the overexposed white. This was in low natural light even. Also sorry about the cobweb.😂

    I like this species, and have a decent plant with several leads which produced two spikes this year. However all of the flowers show burning ( black spotting) so I did not post it here. - I guess they got overheated when we had a hot spell recently ( another "sahara plume" threatened for next week too ) temperatures up to mid 30s in the garden - and to those who scoff, and say that ain't hot - it's a matter of what we ( and our plants ) are accustomed to, and by our standards that is hot - of course in the greenhouse it could get a lot hotter if I'm not careful.
    But, really nice Robb, and shows me what I'm missing. I have ideas about how to keep plant temperatures a bit lower, maybe next year I'll be able to show mine.

    This is interesting. We saw several plants of the normal color form in full blossom on trees in Florida. It was in late May and what struck me was that the plants were growing almost in full sun. And it was warm to say the least, at least around 32 deg C (90 deg F). Maybe the alba form prefers cooler conditions.
