I already have this, but I didn't know the special name of this. Can anyone help me???
Is it your greenhouse or outdoor growing garden in Vietnam ?
The reason I ask is that if you are outside the country, there is a chance this is a hybrid but if you live in Vietnam and bought it from someone who also lives there, the chance of it is a species increase .

This is an exotic species from a long time ago in Vietnam. they call 'Hài Thiên lý'. It has 3 types, depend on the white color of the flower. I just wanna know about the special name of this. someone guess it's insinge fma.album

paph insigne has not been listed as indigenous in Vietnam (supposedly, only in India, Bangladesh & Nepal) , so obviously the scientists were wrong if the Vietnamese found them from the forests in Vietnam.
There are more than 3 varieties , I attach the information of a list of insigne varieties for you to decide which is the closest to your flower (yours is closest to the sanderae, but not quite)
In my opinion the Vietnamese should name this type as variety "vietnamica" "or "name of the province where the Vietnamese found them"
because it does look different from other varieties.
I haven't seen one as beautiful as yours with very very thin white border on dorsal .
I also found a photo with the name insigne var sanderae , and the flowers are similar to yours, however I think his plant's leaves have the typical appearance of plants from Vietnam as well (his flowers also have the very thin white border, and longer and more open petals , unlike the typical wide white border of sanderae variety)

I just think this's a hybrid introduced into Vietnam. and have another one that said it is a hybrid from green complex, but not sure. I ask a lot of people in Vietnam but no one gives me exactly information about it.
