    Default Alba Toot???

    So the second bud on my Dr. Toot opened and it is just a white as the first bloom. Is this an accidental alba? Or do you all think it will produce darker blooms next time? Do you think if it stays white it has some added "orchid value"?

    It will be interesting to see how it blooms next time around, but I think the "alba" version is way cool! Definitely value- added for me!

    Very interesting Paph. Dr. Toot! It looks more like a pale form rather than an alba, only because of the pink pigmentation. Can you trace to the source of the plant? Great flowers!

    PS: Paph. kolopakingii x Paph. delenatii, correct?

    She is beautiful. I love the long petals and the shiny white pouch.
