    I purchased this as a seedling from Paphiness Orchids about 5-7 years ago. It grows much more vigorously than my regular stonei. This is its first bloom.

    Paphiness Orchids and I paid a few hundred for it, as I recall. I do not remember the exact amount.

    It's worth a bit more than that now I would think! Great plant and good growing.

    That's such a happy plant and what a cool colour form! I do like this a LOT! I happened to see a stonei album, in person, for the first time just 2 days ago. I was told that the owner figures that his stonei album is the first and only one to bloom in North America. 'Glad to see that there are more around. As it happens also, I heard Sam Tsui give a talk yesterday on Strap Leafed Paphs. He had a few photos of stonei album in his powerpoint presentation. So, I guess he's been blooming them too. 'Looking forward to when the seedlings are down a bit in price!

    BTW: It's "var. album".

    I believe that it's a selfling of that clone.
