    Yes, P. venustum v. (fma?) Measuresianum. Poorly named alba by many. Its a very nice Paph. This flower looks a bit floppy, better culture will fix that.

    With your culture it should Zain. Flower may be old also. Rarely is there a poor form of this. I wanted to but one at a show last year, Ha, didn't have enough money. Nurseries are charging really stupid prices for plants these days.

    Hopefully it will, most of the yellow/alba form are expensive especially when they are rare, here roughly around 21 USD.
