    I'm dying of envy...beautifull, beautifull flower!!!

    Judging from the relative length of the petal isn't it more likely, it's curtisii (which is, if I'm not totally in the wrong the taxonomic entity of these two described with an albinistic form)?

    What so ever - I would be (almost) ready to kill for a plant and flower like this one! ;)

    Kind regards, Jens

    Many thanks. It is superbiens album, not curtisii. Curtisi's laterals are a little bit curved back. Superbiens has straight laterals.

    Lovely flower. I like this one and other albums very much, but it's alway a great challenge to grow them and keep them alive for longer times.From my experience as an windowsill grower they are more touchy than others.
