    What's mean of fma. Alba vs Album

    Sometimes peoples loosely designate album all the plants that lack other colors and patterns on normal flowers . However in reality, I believe the experts think they should be call green form or yellow form ??? Maybe some Slippertalk members can clarify this issue for us.

    Leaf markings
