WOW! an alba! I am partial to white orchids of any kind....
I believe you when you say this gets to be just three to four inches in diameter flower....I have no complaints then.

Yes its a very old plant too....I don't think you will find the alba form anywhere anymore, maybe in private collections. Yes an alba! When I saw it i was like wow i need a plant from that; which he is gonna prepare for me.
Its gorgeous! Don't get me wrong, I love my indigo prapawan, but man the alba looks amazing; with maybe 100 blooms.
I think that flower size is unique to your specific plant with clonal name 'Tanzanite'. Because others barely make it beyond 3 inches.

My grower/seller from Florida and AM orchids just replied to me that the 'alba' does not exist for this kind of orchid in my part of the world....so your hybrider must be advanced and ahead of the game.

I told you.
I believe this is an old and special var alba seedling turn specimen plant. Never been cloned.
