Here's my version of Albopurpurenum. It looks a lot like Dot's. Of course I'm off on the color, sorry

It does look like mine. I really love it -- it's starting to branch, after the third flower. And I see another spike coming up!

It's beautiful!

I'm always surprised to see pictures of yours or the one Dot has. They look so different from mine. I have two, from two different dealers, but the are both alike. I may possibly have to say that is my all time favorite orchid. It just loves to bloom and is in full bloom again now.

Pretty.
I have one that bloomed out light pinkish white last year. Maybe it will colour up this years blooming, it was in spike while I was on a summer vacation. It grows quite fast

Who did you purchase it from? I have one that was bought as Albopurpureum but I think it is actually Calurum. Mine came from the same place as Dot's.

It's very pretty.

Grandma M's doesn't look like ours either. Maybe she can post hers

I did not buy this plant. It was given to me by another orchid friend that was doing so, so with it. Last yr he gave me the other half:D, which is not blooming size yet. He has gotten into Bulbo's heavly, my fortune! Also, look up the clone 'Sir Aurtur' I think you find that it looks a lot like Calurum
