    I'm happy you picked up the yellow. I looked at just 15mins ago & its still the palest lemon.
    Its a straight Doritis that I know of, no Phal involved. Doritis are now Phalaenopsis.

    Have to stress, this isn't an "alba" form. As Zain posted "flava" form, maybe. It isn't a pure strain crossing.The biggest problem is that the plants from the flask have produced 1/4 plain green leafed plants & 3/4 red/mottled leaf. To call it anything orther that a pale lemon form I'm not sure. This is the result of an "alba" form x "colored" form, neither parent I know or could find out after purchase. It would be very possible that if this was used for breeding for more alba/flavas, colored forms could be produced.
    Probably should have made everything much clearer in original post.
