Thanks for the clarification - you've made it easy now!
I have many printed tags on slippers that say 'alba'!

Paul, I stand corrected...my tag does say album

Uri, I don't have a normal colored one in my collection to compare growth rates with . But I have noted that the next growth is already larger than the growth that is currently blooming from, so I would surmise that it isn't a slow grower.
