Oh yes. I have the lavender one, all mine are the same kind. They have alba and semi alba. Also a corulea (sp) one.

C. walkeriana: You could call Hausermann's and ask if they have a different color other than their alba. I have found them to be very helpful. Andy's has a coerulea.
I have a walkeriana but no idea what color it is. I bought it as an $8 seedling from Al's Orchid Greenhouse. Grows effortlessly.

So far, with Yazz's vote added to the C. walkeriana's, it is in the lead at the moment.

Yes I kind of had a semi alba on top of the list but the alba one is kind of cool as well. I guess I could just use the 3 I have also then I could just get other orchids on my list. I was trying not to get any more right now but I just can't seem to stop myself. I get nothing else done but water plants oh and re-pot I've been doing that too.

I need to make up my mind.

I really liked the walkeriana Andy's was offering and just ordered one.
I had considered Hausermann's alba walkeriana when I did a past order but opted for the C. dolosa (also white) instead. It was a tough choice. :|

I bought a second Leptotes bicolor from Windswept in Time last month so I am set for that one...just in case.

Be careful buying from Lowe's or home depot, all the walkeriana here were actually mossiae

I'd happily snap it up regardless; every store within reasonable driving distance from my house only ever has Phals, so anything else would feel like a miracle.

One of our Lowes had some bag-babies for once but the only interesting orchids were things I already owned or very similar to what I already own. They didn't have a walkeriana or a mossiae. :|

Just a note...we have a tie between Leptotes bicolor and Cattleya walkeriana (Jazz's vote was moved to the Cattleya).
