    It is paler than pictured. I find the dots across the top of the petals interesting. 20190515_081341.jpg

    Gilda, that's a very beautiful flower and I'm green with envy to see this because I had one seedling, many years ago.....but sadly the culture failed.
    On the other hand, as far as I know, these spots mentioned of you prevent it to be a true album. So it's correct name should be P. lowii f. aureum.

    Nice form. But unluckily that it is not a pure album with black dots in the petals.

    I like the dots ...so for me it's not unlucky.

    Great presentation for the aureum form. I've seen a few with very skinny dorsals.
    Mine bloomed out very green and white with the same maroon dots on the petals near the stami. Not at all aureum, so what to call that? Viridis?
