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.

It is ('Ruey Ann Jade' X 'Green Jade')

It is a first bloom plant, so I don't know when it is suppose to bloom.

Philippinense generally bloom late winter and spring.

Those are well formed flowers, how big are they?

I bet the next growth will bloom then. I didn't measure but the petals on the lower flower must be close to 4" the second flower is still expanding.
