    I received this division from Theresa at Redlands this year and it rewarded me with a bloom. My first fairrieanum I've ever bloom and am so happy. Minor flaw on the dorsal sepal (left side). Not sure why that happens. Very nice dark colour and shape.

    Thanks all. It is a treasure since I really like the 'pagoda' look of the oriental style flowers. Can't wait till my fairrieanum albums bloom in a few months.

    Hear, hear...maybe the drawbacks in quality of this years flower was due to stress caused by the division and the change in growth regime, that inevitably always follows, when the plant goes from one grower to another! We eagerly awaits the result for next year!

    And will watch with envy when your fairreanum fma. bohlmannianum (the botanically correct name for the albinistic form of the species) will flower! I'm - almost - ready to kill for laying my hands on this colour form! ;)

    Kind regards, Jens

    Thanks all. The colour of this select clone is darker than the norm. It seems like the line breeding is catering to this trait.

    Yes Jens is correct. This album type is the 'bohlmannianum' form. I was lucky to secure ten of these albums, of which 3-4 are in spike currently. I will post them up when they are in full bloom.
