'Fall River' from Woodstream just opened its first flower...it's white! There's a very light pink blush on the tips of the petals and the tip of the dorsal. Also a pouch necklace of red. Quite surprising bloom and
really lovely. Has anyone here bloomed this Phrag.? No Eric no photo.

Hahahhhahahahaa!!1White or pale yellow?
Most of the photos here of them were stored on Photobucket, i.e. lost. Google the cross or look on SlipperOrchidInfo and you can see some pale ones.

It is not pale yellow...it's white Eric. The bloom has been open for two/three days and
it's still white. I've done the google search, etc. and I haven't seen one nearly as
white as this one. I have two so we'll see what the other one does when it blooms

Well, we won't see them when they bloom, but you can give us a description. ;) Seriously, I've been lusting after a light or white phragmipedium for some time. I have a couple seedlings that might turn out that way, but I guess it doesn't happen too often. Enjoy your plant.
