After it got its award at spring of this year in April, it grew fast after repotting to flower again. Flowers are a little bigger in some areas; like the petal widths now are 2.2 cm vs 1.8 cm. Presently dorsal sepal looks straight but may reflex at base in a few days.

it’s one of my favourite album forms/shapes as it’s similar to javanicum albums.

NS 12 x 11 cm
DS 5 x 5 cm
P 2.2 x 7 cm

I have 2 green flower slippers because of vendors error. I'm not a fan, but on the plus side both my plants seem to be more vigorous than the coloured forms. Do you find that or am I dreaming.

Yes, the spider marking is part of the staminode. Almost looks like it will attract a spider to do pollination, which of course is impossible as they are not known pollinators of slippers.
