Welcome on board, Antonio!

Your flowers look like the albino version of my Leopard 'Ching Hua' also currently in bloom.

Is it nicely scented too?

yes it is nicely scented , stronger by noon, and slowly fades at 6 pm .

the plant was a sib cross of the leopoldii "centro de esmeralda"

love the leopard chin hua! amazing colors (image courtesy of google )

i try to not fall to the temptation of hybrids, but some times it is hard, specially for my wife. she is all about hybrids, and myself species! lol.

cheers!

Antonio.

yes, sometimes it is hard to resist. but for me , species has that botanical value that imho is not present in hybrids, mother nature is just amazing. .

also, some species also offers more challenge to grow well. and I do like challenges.

BTW Off topic , I will be flying to the US (California) on September 13, as you know there are a some really amazing species in this country grown from flasks, please PM me with wish lists, I am willing to trade for some other species. (angracoids, vandaceous or other interesting species) I will reply back with my wish list as well )

keep in mind that plants (if any) will be travelling bare root..

Cheers!
Antonio.
