I got this one from Tropical Gardens in Vancouver in bud. What a cutie with small plant structure (leaves less than 10 cm each) with large alba 7-cm flowers (slight damage from transport in check-in luggage). Love the teacup style. Part of my burgeoning alba paphs collection.

Alas, yet again, one of your flowers to die for, Leslie! I got a division from Sam of this clone, but I'm not quite content about how it is growing... :oops:

I think this one looks very similar to the parent 'Albino Beauty' as posted previously. This shows the consistency of the genes of the parents for size and colour. I have another sib in bud and will compare after in this post.

Jens, why are you discontented with your plant?

Thought I’d post the King and Queen of my mini album in their little kingdom (corner of my top warm shelf). Hail King Barbarian and Queen Helena! LOL A99D037D-6A0C-4942-9172-79B5DA8212E3.jpeg 0C77BF53-B225-40BD-B638-6D367DB87C5D.png

Both gorgeous!

Concerning my own Albino Beauty-division from Sam...I'm a little worried as it doesn't seem to be in the best of growth... I've been way too busy at work lately, but will inspect it closer next time, I'm watering!

Btw. if the albinistic forms of helenae and barbigerum respectively are the Queen and King of your album collection, I wonder what rank has been ascribed to P. charlesworthii fma. sandowiae? Queen Dowager...or Empress ditto?! ;)

Another grower also noted that the barbigerum aureum ‘Albino Beauty’ is slow growing as well. Might be the cultivar. The babies of the selfing seems to be more vigorous.

In regards to the alba rankings, charlesworthii fm. sandowiae is the Emperor Charlemagne. He is presently holding court below overseeing the fairrieanum bohlmannianums (aka Fairy Princesses) blossoming.

Would you be happier if I told you that about six bellatulum albums are in sheath? Princess Belladonnas are on their way!

If you put the wish list in your head, it will materialize like mine. Just keep wishing, hoping, begging and annoying the nurserymen. Someone will give way!
