Another albino family member that is blooming: officially Paph godefroyae var leucochilum fma album
Bloomed first time ever in March this year, now did a second blooming in December

Just for fun... a little mind game:
if a "leucochilum" is a godefroyae with a spotless lip, isn't a "leucochilum album" same as a godefroyae with spotless lip AND spotless petals?
so how could we ever separate a "godefroyae album" from a "leucochilum album" unless you found it nature in an area with only leucochilums.

But I am happy with it whatever you want to call it :)

Nice one Dirk.

Besides providence, in my experience the godefroyae albums are bigger plants and flowers than the leucochilum albums (which also has narrower pouch and taller inflorescences).
