    Do you know the differences between "flava" and "alba"? My plant came labeled as "alba", but someone I know who is more knowledgeable about taxonomy than me told me that what some people call the "alba" form is actually "flava", so I changed the tag. When I have seen pictures, the two look the same to me. There also seems to be some confusion, including mine .

    Same here - mine on the label says "alba" on one plant and "flava" on the other plant but they are yet too small to bloom.

    After checking the web and comparing some photos of the alba and flava varieties - on close inspection, they do look similar. Hmmm .... maybe some naming mix-up perhaps? If the two are the same then that means I have two plants of "alba/flava" whatever is the correct name of the variety.

    Perhaps there may never be a true alba or white form variety ... but who knows some rare occurence of that might be discovered someday?

    Yes, please share pictures. I have a red one too, but is still a baby.

    Do these have a nice smell? If so they'd be just about jumping in my cart!
    They are supposed to be fragrant, but no matter how often I sniff, I don't smell anything. Could be just me

    Send it to me! hehehe
    The yellow one has a keiki coming .

    Going to be awhile before I see if it's truely a "red". Two nice long spikes but no sign of a bud yet.
