Sharing another albino species in my collection that first flowered last september.
I like the fact that absence of colors makes you appreciate the finer details (veins, cilia, warts, shapes) so much more.
I always cut the first flower after it got it's final shapes and curves so the plant can put his full energy in new growths.
Specially the warm dry summers I find brutal for inhouse culture.

Nice points! Looks like a vigorous clone.

Most of mine died in my early orchid career for no apparent reason other than they were weak. Luckily I’ve managed to secure 10 more BS from PaphParadise recently. In fact one (or possibly two) is in spike! So excited 😆.

Great flower. Congrats 👌 P. fowliei plants look in photos bigger than they are in reality.
