    One (or rather two) of my stowaways from Japan GrandPrix show lol. From Bela Vista Orchids.

    Quite pretty and if the flowers aren't fragrant, they should
    be. The color combo is very distinctive.

    Thanks all. I just notice that one of the flowers has a lip that is not pure white! Has a slight pinkish cast to it. That declassifies it from being a true alba, maybe an albescent.

    That would be a 5-7 year experiment lol. I have no patience for that, but rather just buy more seedlings from BV.
