I think that this is one of the best walkeriana alba clones available: it's flowers are crystalline white and the plant is very compact (about 1/2 the size of 'Pendentive', which probably isn't a straight walkeriana so not a fair comparison).

The white coloring and form are nice, but IMO, the best part of this one are those green sepal tips! Great growing!

Great looking flower! Do you know the lineage of this one by chance? Is it pure Equilab, Equilab x self, etc.?

I believe it to be a pure 'Equilab'. I purchased it as a desiccated 3 bulb division several years ago from a grower who is pretty accurate with his labeling.

I love the walkeriana fragrance. Unfortunately I've always had trouble getting mine to bloom. Yours is beautiful. Good growing.

It's fantastic! Really great shape and the white and slight amount of yellow on the lip look great together. I would be quite pleased having this one.

I sincerely doubt this plant is pure walkeriana.
